We’re ‘Here to HELP’ older and vulnerable people in Harrogate & Ripon during the COVID-19 crisis

(Please note, our voluntary car driving, home befriending and handyman services are temporarily suspended)

COVID-19 – we’re Here to HELP

Looking out for our neighbours has never been more important, and we can all do our bit to ensure that people who need a little extra help are not forgotten at this time.

Help at Home

Our gardening, decorating and basic repair service assists residents across the Harrogate District. All tasks are carried out by volunteers with support from one of our supervisors.

Transport services

Our voluntary car drivers with our two driving services help passengers unable to access public transport due to mobility or location. We assist people across the Harrogate District.

Ripon & Rural Befriending

We offer befriending visits in Ripon and the surrounding rural areas at times when people may need a little more support e.g. after bereavement, during ill health or after discharge from hospital.
