We’re here to bring people together

We’re excited to introduce companiions to the world. Here’s what we’re all about, the difference we want to make, and how you can be a part of our vision to bring companionship to every community. 


Companionship made easy
After months of inspiration, collaboration and building, companiions is here and we couldn’t be happier. companiions brings together people who need a little help with those ready to help – quickly, easily and safely.

We want to take the struggle and stress out of arranging and offering companionship, to help communities thrive. Part of that means making a digital experience that’s as effortless as can be, and takes care of the hard work for you.

You can access companiions via our app on the Google Play or Apple App Store, or via your desktop browser. 

We’re transforming companionship
So, how did we get the idea for companiions? Like many of today’s businesses, we created our company because we saw a problem and had a burning desire to fix it. 

Through personal experience, we noticed that care doesn’t always feel caring. It’s expensive, tricky to arrange and often pretty impersonal. There are many people out there who don’t need care, but do need a chat, someone to take care of the chores, or just check in. People of all ages are struggling with loneliness and they simply shouldn’t have to.


Meanwhile there are people out there brimming with compassion, who want to make money while making a difference.


We believe in the power of companionship, and we’ve experienced for ourselves the difference it can make. So we dreamt up and built companiions – to make arranging a little help quick, easy and safe. It’s accessible, affordable and open to anyone, anywhere who passes our thorough vetting process. 

Be part of our journey
We’re here to bring people together. Our vision? To bring companionship to every community. It’s a bold goal but we know we can make it happen. 


Of course, we can’t do it alone. We’re counting on people like you to be part of our journey, whether you’re organising companionship for yourself or a loved one, or offering companionship. Or all three!
