Volunteer

Our charity is about local people helping local people in need. We give people support and opportunities to help people feel better about themselves, be more active in the community and get back into work. We could not do this without the time, skills and passion of our brilliant volunteers.

We are very lucky to have a brilliant team of over 60 volunteers who support the charity in so many ways – our volunteers each share their talents to support the most vulnerable in our community.

Have you thought about volunteering to give back to our community?

I have been making and providing soup for Helping hands for over 3 years (I think) on Thursday evenings from fresh ingredients, many grown from my allotment. Everyone deserves to eat fresh healthy food. I also provide cooking workshops for the Esther Project.
