Connects help, strengthens autonomy

Learn more about us

An online platform that turns neighbours into everyday heroes? 🦸 ♂️ It exists! At Helpper, every click is a new opportunity to connect and provide help that can facilitate (or even change!) lives ... Ready? We'll take you through their success story!

Founded in 2017 by Antwerp entrepreneur François Gerard, Helpper was born when his father was diagnosed with ALS. During this period, François' father could always count on the warm support of a neighbour who regularly lent a helping hand with all kinds of small daily tasks. Inspired by this kindness and faced with the limitations of traditional home care, François had the idea to develop an innovative peer-to-peer platform that connects people in need of help with helpful neighbors. 👬🏡

But how exactly does it work? 🤔 It's simple: the platform connects users with recognized disabilities and care organizations that sometimes need help with daily tasks (such as transportation, grocery shopping, companionship,...) with flexible and enthusiastic neighborhood assistants. No unnecessary frills at Helpper! Driven by social impact, the team is committed to people, WITH people. 🤝 A win-win for everyone, as the assistants are recognized and compensated for their invaluable contributions!

What once started with a knock on the door of a neighbour has now grown into a sharing economy platform that connects thousands of people in Flanders and Brussels... Success stories like that ask for more, don't they? 🥳
