Become a Local Expert and earn rewards while helping to fight parent loneliness where you live

Are you a parent to a baby/toddler, out pounding the pavements every day with buggy and nappy bag in tow? Or perhaps you’ve got older children, but your knowledge of cafes, community centres or WhatsApp groups where you live is still unrivalled. Or maybe you’re a class provider who could recite every baby-friendly venue in the area, putting ChatGPT to shame…?

However you gained your wonderful local knowledge: if you love your community, and want to help tackle loneliness for the new parents who live there, (while earning some great rewards along the way!), we’d love you to become a Happity Local Expert.

How does it work?

As a Local Expert, you’ll earn points for helping us grow Happity in your city – things like telling us about classes and venues which aren’t on the site, putting up flyers in your local cafes, and posting info in Facebook and WhatsApp groups. (Our Expert ‘mini-missions’!)

Every 5 points you earn can be exchanged for £5 in Amazon vouchers, to spend on everything from nappies to a new TV!

You’ll be helping local mums, dads and caregivers to escape the four walls…

… by getting out to classes and groups nearby.

Looking after babies and toddlers can be really hard, and we know so many new parents struggle on alone, not realising there are probably tons of places to brighten up the day – for them and their little one – within walking distance!

With the help of Local Experts across the country, we’re on a mission to change all that, and make sure every new parent gets the chance to build fun, supportive, and joyful moments into their week.

I’d love to join the team, how do I apply?

Great! Simply fill out the form below to tell us a bit about yourself, and we’ll get back to you with more details.

We’d especially love to hear from you if you’re in Bristol, Southampton or Portsmouth – but if you live somewhere else and want to help, please let us know! Fill in the form and we’ll be in touch as soon as we’re in your area!

How much time do I need?

There are no fixed hours or days of the week – you can do the mini-missions whenever suits you, and for however much time you have. Lots of our lovely Local Experts are on parental leave, or working part-time, but this is not essential.

Tell me about the Local Expert rewards

You’ll earn rewards for completing the following mini-missions in your local area:

Tell us about classes

You’ll get 1 point for every class not already on the Happity database.

Tell us about venues

You’ll get 1 point for every venue not already on Happity. The venue should have baby or toddler classes running.

Flyers and noticeboards

You’ll get 2 points for every noticeboard where you pin up a Happity flyer, in places like cafes and GP surgeries. Don’t worry, we’ll post your flyer pack to you when you come on board as a Local Expert.

Facebook and WhatsApp groups

You’ll get 1 point for every post in local groups online. No-one likes spam, including us, so these will need to be relevant to the conversation and permitted by the group rules. We can give you some more guidance on that once you come on board.

Every 5 points you earn can be exchanged for £5 in Amazon vouchers. Simple!

How do I register?

Ready to share your brilliant local knowledge, help new parents get out and about in your community, and earn rewards for your time along the way? We can’t wait to hear from you! Send us a few details and we’ll be back in touch if we looking for Experts where you live.
