Safe together

Safety is a common goal for you and your neighbors. By cooperating in Carehood you can make your neighborhood safer and more secure. But Carehood is about more than crime and crime prevention.

  • If you need help keeping an extra eye on your house when you travel.
  • If you are in a medical emergency.
  • If there is a burglary.
  • If you need a plummer and want recommendations from your neighbors.
  • If you want to report suspicious activity in your neighborhood.
  • If you find a lost pet.
  • If you are looking for a jogging companion.
  • If you want to find a dog walker.

We built Carehood to get you closer to your neighbors when you need them.

What is a carehood?

Carehood is a members only area in the Carehood app. You can discuss, inform and share images with the other members. If you are exposed to crime and need help you can send alarms to your carehood. A carehood is always tied to a geographic location.

Anyone can start a carehood. As a new Carehood member you can search for interesting carehoods on a map in the app. When you apply for membership in a carehood one of the current members has to approve your application before you can join the discussions. You can start and join as many carehoods as you like and there are no limits on the number of members a carehood can have. The founder of a carehood is just a founder. People joining becomes members on the same terms as the founder.
