The 50plus

Become a helper (individual)

Help is available on 0845 22 50 495 or one of our local numbers during business hours.

Becoming a Helper gives you the ability to undertake jobs requested by customers. You become a Helper by completing the form below. 50plus takes care of the sales and marketing, financial settlement and has an online booking system allowing you to work when and only when you want to and at a rate set by you.

Helpers are booked by customers who see the helpers initials, service offered, skill set and charges. Only customers in the operating area selected by you as part of the registration process will see your information and be able to book you. Once booked you receive an automatic email notification of the booking with the full details of the customer and the requested job.

Once 50plus has your information it will be checked and if all is well you will be authorised on the 50plus Help platform.

A detailed view of how 50plus works from the Helper's perspective is included in the 'How the system works page' accessible from the Helper menu on your left, once you have registered.

We can if required register you over the telephone. Call us to take this option. We'll go through the form with you.
