Social network comes to city

Have your say

A SOCIAL network born from a collective belief that life is better when we help each other is coming to Portsmouth.

Helpfulpeeps was founded by Simon Hills and Saf Nazeer to bring back community spirit.

Since launching in Bristol last year, they have grown into an online community of almost 20,000 members sharing their time, energy, skills and knowledge to help each other for free.

Saf said: ‘We have a simple ethos of “ask for help when you want and help others when you can”.

‘All help on the site is given for free – no transaction or exchange; just good old-fashioned community help.

‘The website tells you who needs help with what and where, and puts you in touch directly. It’s a fantastic way to get involved in your community and make friends.’
