Get Connected

Help for neighbours from neighbours, that’s what getting connected is all about. 

Maybe you need a hand with a small job around the house, need to borrow some tools to do something yourself, or just need some help or advice? You may want to give some old furniture or used baby clothes away. If you are registered and signed in you can add a new request below. 

Or if you can help out yourself you can search requests posted in your area and get in touch directly. It’s a great way to help make your neighbourhood a great place to live and who knows, maybe next time you’ll be looking for help yourself.

Get Connected can only be used by adults aged 18 and over. We want you to enjoy using Bubble safely so please read our common-sense safety guide to getting connected.
