Harrogate Easier Living Project (HELP)
Who we are
Our charity supports older and vulnerable people across the Harrogate district to remain living independently within their own homes. With the help of over 100 dedicated volunteers, we help with the everyday things that can worry and distress if you are living without others nearby to support you.
Each year we help hundreds of people to stay connected with their communities through:
- Volunteer befriending and social groups
- Voluntary car driving services to enable those who can’t access public transport due to rural location and/or limited mobility to attend medical appointments, make social visits, attend day centres and make essential trips such as shopping or banking.
- ‘Help at Home’ gardening, decorating and odd job service for people unable to do the work themselves or could not afford a professional tradesperson
