The Lend a Hand service comprises of three sections:
Lend a Hand Direct Support
DIY and Handyman services: Provided to help out with one off Gardening or light DIY type work. We can change a plug but we can’t help with mainstream electrics!
Carer Relief: We can for instance provide volunteers who will sit with a relative giving a carer a few hours to have some time off or do vital errands.
We also offer services such as Home from Hospital and Dog Walking.
All our volunteers are DBS checked with the relevant authorities.
