Supporting older or vulnerable people to live independently
across the Harrogate District
Opening Doors aims to promote maximum independence for older people and people with a sensory impairment or physical disability. We do this by accompanying our clients to where they want and need to get to.
Help at Home
Help at Home is a gardening, decorating and basic repair service. Help at Home covers the whole of the Harrogate District. All tasks are carried out by volunteers with support from one of our supervisors.
Driving Force in the Harrogate and Knaresborough area, and Ripon & Rural Voluntary Driving Service in the Ripon area help passengers unable to access public transport due to mobility or location.
Ripon & Rural Wellbeing
The Service offers regular visits to over 65s in Ripon and the surrounding rural areas at times when they need a little more support e.g. after bereavement, during ill health or after discharge from hospital.
We organise regular lunch clubs for the over 65s across the district. Run by a team of volunteers, our lunch clubs are a great way to get out and enjoy company over good food. Transport may also be available on request.
Volunteer with us
Whether you wish to become a regular volunteer or just lend a hand occasionally, there are lots of ways in which you can make a difference to the people we support from practical roles to office based volunteering.
