Harrogate Easier Living Project (HELP) provides support for older or vulnerable people and those with a disability to remain independent in their own home and out and about in the community.
At this challenging time, we know many older and vulnerable people across the district are in need of support. For those of you without family, friends and neighbours to turn to, we want to reassure you that we are here to HELP.
To respond to your needs, our dedicated volunteers will be working with us to offer the following support during the COVID-19 outbreak:
Phone befriending – we can give you a regular call to offer a listening ear and a chat
Errand service for shopping and essential items – if you need help with getting in supplies, collecting a prescription etc. we will ask a trusted and vetted volunteer to get them for you. We can also put you in touch with local suppliers who may be able to deliver to your door.
Please note: our regular Driving Force and Help at Home gardening, decorating and odd job services are suspended temporarily to redirect our staff to helping out with errands. If our existing clients have an essential odd job that really can’t wait though, please contact us and we will try to assist.
