About us

Wivenhoe Helping Hands clearly fulfills a need: the demand for our services has kept rising and so has our own need for more volunteers! One thing that has stayed the same throughout is the organisation's aim to provide residents of Wivenhoe with a helping hand at the time when they need it. It is not just for the elderly, it is for everyone

We are a non-profit making organisation, funded entirely by donations. We are staffed entirely by volunteers, who give of their time willingly out of a desire to help others. All volunteers are DBS checked, the cost of which is paid for by the organisation.

Wivenhoe Helping Hands is open to all, regardless of age. We operate within the bounds of Wivenhoe. However, where there is a medical need we will endeavour to assist people to access services locally.

More volunteers, especially car drivers, are always needed. Contact us by telephone on 07834 452764 and leave a message if the phone holder is unable to answer immediately.
