How Favourhood Works

On Favourhood, neighbours either
ask for a favour, or offer a favour:

Grocery Shopping

Help with picking up items from the store. Whether an online delivery or a local shop - team up with your neighbours to ease the load and stay safe.

Mask Making

Ask your neighbours if you're looking for a mask yourself or perhaps for a local group or office. As we start getting out and about more, masks will be important!

Dog Walking

If you need help getting your pet more exercise or any other pet-related tasks, reach out to a neighbour who may be happy to help!

Technical Support

Is that pesky gadget giving you trouble? Reach out for some help, a neighbour might know of a good fix or be able to help you get back on track.

Emotional Support

Stay connected by chatting or having a call with a local neighbour. Whether it's over the phone or a socially-distanced chat, find somone near you who you can reach out to...

Bike Repairs

Reach out to your local neighbours if you need assistance with a bike tuneup, repair or related help. That bike guru in your neighboorhood might like to lend a hand!

Sending Mail & Packages

Need help with a heavy package or a delivery to the local post office or another drop off point? Ask a neighbour for a hand.

Other Help

Don't see what you need (or can help with) on the list? Just enter it in for neighbours to see.

Support Favourhood and keep the love going!

We created this app during a time of COVID-19, social distancing, and an increased awarness that we are better together, as equal and caring members of our communities and neighbourhoods. It's a labor of love, and any donations are appreciated and go directly into paying the expenses and fees of running an app platform like this at scale.

Using the App

Have a family member you want to help remotely?

If you have a family member or friend that lives far away, Favourhood is a great tool to help reach out to neighbours that can help. For those older adults who need to shelter-in-place or manage their exposure sensitively - try registering with their address (not yours), connect with their neighbours, and find someone that can help out!

Frequently Asked Questions

A few of our most common questions:

I'm not seeing any other map pins in my neighbourhood, what's up?

We've just launched the Favourhood App, and it's very likely you could be the first in your neighbourhood. If that's the case - spread the word and share Favourhood with your neighbours, help them get onboard, and start connecting!

The other issue may be that there are no 'matches' - which means no one is providing the 'favour' you are looking for, and vice versa - if you're willing to help out, there may not be anyone that's currently looking for that type of help. No worries - just keep trying, connecting, and sharing - the app will do the rest!

I'd like to use the app for my parents who live far away, can I do that?

Absolutely, yes! That's a big reason why we created the app. Simply put in your parent address, and you can then 'manage' your connections in their neighbourhood from the app. It's a great way to help from afar, and connect with helpful and caring neighbours near them.

4. I’d like to offer help but I don’t see it listed in the main categories.

The best way to add new favours is to use the 'Other' category. Simply select it from the list and then type in whatever you are willing to help out with OR what you are looking for. The app will help make connections and match people looking for, and people providing, that same favour.

Are businesses and other organizations on Favourhood?

No. At the moment, Favourhood has been built for neighbourhood connections only. For kind neighbours, helping each other in a small radius that is limited to around 1/2 mile from your address. Could that include a small business? Yes. As long as that neighbourhood shop is providing a valuable service and a helping hand, we're in support of it!
