ExtendedRelative is aimed at young working families with too much to do and not enough money to pay for help to get it done. At its core, ExtendedRelative is a robust scheduling and accounting tool. At its heart, it is a community-building platform designed to help neighbors get to know each other.
After signing up, you will be able to either join or create a group from your local community. You can create requests for help or help others in your community with those typical domestic tasks such as babysitting and carshares. Each member is allocated a fixed number of credits and transactions. You use these credits to pay for and receive these domestic services.
For example, Andrea is a single mother who works full time and has 2 kids and no family to help her. With babysitting costing £10 per hour, she cannot afford a regular babysitter. ExtendedRelative can help her find local people she can trust to get the assistance she needs and still have time for her family.
