Mind For Me - FAQs


There are many reasons such as:

    1. 1. No money or feeling of debt, using a fair points-based system;
    1. 2. Better control over who you ask and privacy on responses;
    1. 3. Quick and easy to request a hand and without “begging for a favour”;
    1. 4. With Ratings and Reviews you can build trust through the help that’s been provided; and
    1. 5. Grow support networks through expanding who you ask for help with Friends of Friends.

Simply put no. Care Coins can only be earned, mostly through helping others but you can do this when it suits you. There are also incentives where you can earn Care Coins, such as inviting others to the platform as this helps you and others. There are plenty of Uber-like and Airtasker platforms out there for help where you can just pay. Mind For Me™ is about helping others so you can then get help you need, when you need it and without the cost.

CCs (Care Coins) are automatically calculated based on the effort, time, notice and public/bank holidays. One (1) hour of childminding for one child is worth 60 CCs, if giving at least 1 days notice with your request. Shorter notice periods apply a 25-50% increase as an incentive to see you get the urgent help you need.

Mind For Me™ has been built for everyone, globally. Mobile/cell phone verifications, locations and addresses work for everywhere. We’ve prepared it for extra languages and will be working on adding more soon.


You don’t need to enter your complete address. Suburb/City should be the minimum but street name may be more effective. Mind For Me works on locations to ensure requests for help are relevant and in the area you’ve selected in the settings.

Currently we use mobile verification and are preparing other security and identity checks. During our Pilot Program we highly recommend using Mind For Me with the friends and neighbours you know, and extending this to friends they know and trust.

Safety, Privacy and Security

Mind For Me is also a social network, connecting people with their friends. When you make a help request you can choose to only ask your friends, or to include their trusted friends as well. You don’t have to ask everyone publicly, it’s your choice.

Pricing & Subscriptions

No. We don’t want to force a small handful of people to pay extra for the use of of the platform. Mind For Me is for everyone and even more importantly, we want to give everyone full access to as many features as possible and without any limitations. This is why we want to keep the subscriptions at a very low and affordable price, and have unrestricted trials available too.

The Mind For Me Foundation exists to ensure those that are vulnerable and disadvantaged can still benefit from the platform, and also have the appropriate assistance necessary to be able to safely establish support networks and use it safely.

Everyone gets a 3 month trial of Mind For Me so you get a good feel, some time to establish your support network with friends, family and neighbours and ensure you can easily benefit through using the platform.
