Harpenden Helping Hand is a Charity founded in 1971. Our volunteers provide help to anyone living in Harpenden who needs a ‘helping hand’ whatever their age and whatever their circumstances.
Our volunteers are able to drive people to local hospitals, doctors’ and dental surgeries and opticians when taking public transport or a taxi would be difficult. All we ask is as much notice as possible, and a small donation to the charity for the help received. We can also help by taking people who have difficulty shopping alone to the shops or, if they are housebound, by undertaking their shopping for them. Volunteers can befriend the housebound or offer respite to a carer.
