Here to HELP volunteer (Covid-19 support)

Since the start of the Covid-19 outbreak, our Here to HELP volunteers have been supporting people in Harrogate and Ripon to help them stay safe and well at home. Now people are returning to work or education, we are looking for more volunteers who might be able to spare a couple of hours or week (or more or less) to look out for older and the most vulnerable people in our communities, without family and friends to support them.

So far our fantastic team of Here to HELP volunteers have carried out over 3,200 tasks including food shopping and prescription pick ups for those isolating or shielding. We’d love you to join the team that is making a real difference to people in our community.

If you're over 18 years of age, healthy and not at high risk (see NHS guidelines), we'd love to hear from you.
