Some people are unable to fetch supplies for themselves, whether it be because of a disability, stuck with kids, or due to covid isolation.
Sometimes it can be difficult to do even the most basic errands. Crisis Heroes allows you to request or offer help with errands such as posting some mail or mowing the lawn.
You can be in a personal crisis due to depression, or be part of a larger crisis like COVID19. Either way, it can help to talk with someone. You can start by chatting on Crisis Heroes text chat, and upgrade to a phone call if you feel up to it.
Is your Volunteer Organisation hard to manage? Is it spread out over Facebook and other bits of software?

If you're struggling in some way you can easily send out a request for help. This can be as simple as asking for a friendly phone call. Anyone near you will be able to see it and offer their help.Become a hero NOW
The team at Wicked Sites were brainstorming how we could help during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. As the threat of the virus loomed and the lock-down laws were implemented, our first thought was about those that might be most affected and decided to build a platform where they could reach out to others for help.
We are a small team with only 1 programmer, so we ask for your feedback and patience so that we can refine it and it make it a great tool for everyone. We want to ensure we are doing our very best in helping those that are in need during this tragic time in humanity.
You should feel safe and supported when engaging with other people on the Crisis Heroes platform. Our online chat function has been implemented in response to isolation and loneliness people may be facing due to the impacts of COVID-19. If you or the person you are speaking with need access to information surrounding mental health, please refer the following resources below.
