Our House2Home project provides furniture and household goods to recently homed & low-income families in South Warwickshire. People are referred to us by organisations like children’s centres, social services & domestic violence charities.

When people are re-homed, they are often given a place to stay but not all essentials like a fridge or bed. Thank you to our generous community for providing these goods that our volunteers deliver to those who need it. This helps turn empty houses into homes!

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and government guidelines on social distancing severely limiting our ability to collect and deliver furniture safely,  our House2Home Project is at a very reduced capacity. While we work through the backlog from the first lockdown, we are currently not able to accept new self-referrals. We are sorry for the frustration and disappointment this causes and are working as hard as we can to reopen fully when it is safe again to do so.

We are sorry that we are not able to accept new self-referrals currently as restrictions mean that we have very reduced capacity and we will reopen fully when it is safe again to do so.

If you or someone you know would benefit from support from our charity in Leamington, Warwick & Kenilworth, get in touch or pop into The Lighthouse or the Gateway Cafe.

How does it work?

Empty room

Making homes

This empty space became home for one of our clients with a little help from House2Home.

Supporting House2Home

House2Home would not exist without the generous support from our local community – which comes in many ways from helping with organisation and deliveries to donating household items.

We are very grateful for the many offers of support, but with limited storage space we can only take items in good condition that we need for the people referred to us.

We are looking for more permanent options for storage to enable us to focus on delivering what our clients need – if you can help please get in touch.

Thanks too to the volunteers and businesses who support this project!

Partnering with local business

Aston Martin kindly provided a van after our previous van was stolen! Our beautifully sign-written van even has a tail-lift - a dream addition for the team who collect and deliver large and heavy items. Thanks Andy and all at Aston Martin - this has meant so much to Helping Hands. Thank you!

Helping Hands Community Project encourages our clients to move towards their goals building self esteem through accessing a range of services including volunteering.

The House2Home project is part of a range of support that we offer to help people get back on their feet.
