How we can help you. A lady fighting back tears as she receives help from two caring visitors.

What to expect

When you contact us to request help, we will take your details and organise for someone to get in touch with you. Two volunteers will visit you to discuss your particular problems in depth. These friendly people will make no judgement on the situation.

Our volunteers meet once a week so assistance may take up to 10 days depending on the day you send your request.
