QI need some assistance, but I don't see any helpers around
APlease be aware that the service does not guarantee that there will be a helper available to give assistance when required. If you’re struggling to find someone to help you, try sending out another help request.
QI’m in the area but I’m not receiving any requests for help
APlease be aware that the service does not guarantee that someone will ask for your assistance. When offering your services as a helper, just do as much as you are reasonably able. You may not receive a direct request, but a notification (• of helpers are around you) is sent out to registered users in the area who might need assistance. People find it reassuring simply to know there are helpers around just in case they need one!
QA passer-by helped me before I actually met my helper, so I didn't need any support after all.
AJust click "Cancel request" on your talk screen. The helper will be notified that their assistance is no longer needed.
QI was ready to assist someone but then I couldn't go to the meeting place
AClick "Decline request" on the talk screen. The help requester will be notified.
QI can’t find the person who has asked for help/the helper
AAs the requester and the helper approach each other, the message “Display Card” appears on the talk screen. The requester and helper both see the same image. When you are about to meet, highlight the card on the screen and hold the phone around - that will make it easier for you to find each other, serving as a mark. You can also refer to details such as color of the clothes the other person is wearing or the accessory they are carrying. But if you still cannot find the person, press "Cancel request" or "Decline request".
QI’m nervous about assisting someone in a wheelchair or with a stroller on my own
AIf you think it will be physically too difficult to help someone by yourself, or that there is a risk of someone getting injured, don’t strain yourself. Just politely say you can’t do it. Instead, tell the person which way to go to use a slope or an elevator. We want all users and helpers to feel safe and confident when they use the service.
