Have you ever said the words “if there is anything I can do to help let me know?” When a friend or loved one is going through a difficult time, it’s natural to want to help, although often times it’s hard to know what practical support to give.

Everything we do at Swathe.me makes every day better during difficult times.  And we make it really easy for you to give practical support to someone you know in their time of need, even when you can’t be there in person.

Our Direct Support Platform is free and simple to use, and you’ll feel good knowing you can really help in a meaningful way that works for both you and your loved one.

Hundreds of Kiwis rely on Swathe.me
to support someone they know.
