The Really Helpful Club

My name is Sarah Austin and I am the founder of Really Helpful Club (RHC).  I’m passionate about helping one another and making our lives easier and this is what RHC is all about.  It’s a FREE online network that brings together dynamic, busy and like-minded people to share great ideas and connect with one another - a virtual word of mouth.

RHC is a very positive community built on: Sharing, Discovering and Connecting


RHC Members’ Forums

As a member, you can share personal recommendations and ask questions in the Forums which allows you to find and recommend great businesses.  Word of mouth is the best way of finding anything we are looking for in our daily lives and this is a secure platform which offers a trusted and efficient way of sharing our knowledge and leveraging our networks.   

RHC Directory

Discover handy contacts and useful resources in the RHC Directory to help you find everything you need. Only businesses with outstanding recommendations from RHC members MAY be invited to list in our Directory.  This means you can be sure that everything you find has been tried and tested and personally recommended by another RHC member.

RHC Events

Run by Caroline Edwards, our events bring to life what we’re doing online and helps you to make new connections and learn and discover something new.  They are fun, interesting and a great way to meet other people with a shared interest or a new skill.  Our events and workshops cover a wide range of areas from lifestyle (e.g: mindfulness, nutrition, arts, health, well-being and sport) to supporting charities and helping members reconnect with the workplace, either in the corporate world or to start and grow a business.
