Who we are
We are a small charity working with over 250 volunteers in Harrogate and Ripon, North Yorkshire.
What we do
Our ‘Here to HELP’ volunteers & staff are here for anyone who needs us at this difficult time. We are here to provide vital practical and emotional support to vulnerable and older adults struggling during self-isolation. We’ve already assisted with over 1,200 calls for help with delivering food and prescriptions and phone befriending. As an established charity with years of experience, people know and trust us. This gives them peace of mind at this very unsettling time.
What we need money for
Even as lockdown eases, life will not return to anything near normal for many of our beneficiaries. Their physical & mental health may prevent them from getting out and about and many of the community services they rely on may not be fully operational for some time to come. We’ll continue to be here for them by creating an ongoing, trusted support network so they can remain safe and well at home.
To do this we need money to pay for our running costs. We receive no money for items like equipment, fuel, face masks and other items needed to keep our volunteers safe . Please help us so we can continue to be #HereToHelp for those most in need.
