Bringing people together

It's a bit like a dating site...

Lindsey came to us with a great idea for a new business that would provide an online platform to help lonely and isolated people who need support or companionship connect with local people who could help them. It is almost like a dating service! We have helped Close to Hand from that first day and look forward to working with them for many years to come.

How it all started

We aimed to provide the support and resources that Close to Hand needed to get their idea off the ground. We took this photo on one of her first visit to our offices.

Growing a brand

Nina set about designing the logo, the brand colours, the website, the leaflets and the adverts in a way that was warm and approaching without feeling clinical or corporate.

Video tells the story

We soon realised that video would be a key tool for telling their story. As a brand new service, we needed to engage people and to explain the benefits that Close to Hand offer to people looking for help as well as those looking to provide that support.

Plans for the future

Who knows what the future holds, but we are committed to being part of the Close to Hand story for as long as they need us. We are currently working on marketing the business to spread the word using PPC advertising as well as managing their web presence.

"I have been working with Beyond Local since 2017. Nina and Mark have worked with me from the initial conception stage through to the delivery of my site and beyond, as we grow and evolve. Each step of the way they have helped bring my ideas to life and have been an invaluable source of support and encouragement."
