AN EASY & FRIENDLY WAY TO ORGANISE CHILD CARE - WITH PEOPLE YOU TRUST

WHAT IS CAREPOOL ALL ABOUT?

CarePool is a mobile app to help families and their trusted networks of friends and family organise ad hoc care of children. The CarePool app had three key features:

ASK FOR HELP

When you need to ask for help with minding your kids, CarePool helps you send a request to the people you select that’s beautiful, respectful and non-imposing. Zero awkward.

OFFER SOME HELP

When you want to help someone out, and build goodwill, CarePool helps you to send a fun and lovely care offer that the parent can accept with one click. You name the time.

BUILD YOUR CARE COMMUNITY

Set up your own network of friends and family – people who can help you and who you can help. Start building reciprocity and goodwill at the same time. Give it a try!

WANT TO SEE WHAT WE ARE UP TO?

It's all about community building

Why have we created CarePool?

We want to make the lives of parents easier. Children are amazing, but all parents need help sometimes. Time out do the shopping, go to the doctor, get some work done, meet a friend and talk about something other than Sam’s latest developmental leap. However, it is not always easy organising care. There are loads of services out there helping people find paid babysitters and nannies. But what about the willing network of people that are already right under our noses, in our communities. Our friends and family. Often, people want to help, but it is not always easy to make it happen. CarePool is an app that will be the answer to many of the difficulties people face in arranging ad hoc care of children. We want to create a fun, easy and friendly way to organise care, and build community and goodwill at the same time. Come and give it a try!

WHO ARE WE?

CarePool was founded in 2015 by two parents who want to help families build stronger more supportive connections with their communities. We have delved deeply into the questions of: what are the barriers to asking for help, and equally, to offering help? We strongly believe that CarePool will help overcome some of these barriers and help build stronger connections between people.
