Handy Helpers

Handy Helpers

Do you want to do good for your local community, develop your skills and make new friends, but you haven’t got the time to make a regular commitment?

Handy helpers is a unique initiative which enables you to take part in a wide range of one-off volunteering opportunities in the local community. You can pick and choose what activities you want to participate in based on your interests and availability.

From community gardening to decorating animal shelters and event logistics, you will have the opportunity to gain experience in various settings while actively contributing to the local community.

There’s no long-term commitment, just get involved in the activities that suit you. As an added feel good factor, you’ll get access to relevant training and a loyalty card that gives you even more rewards for changing the world around you!

The latest government restrictions strongly reiterate the stay at home guidance and the previous allowance for groups to meet has been removed.

Registration for the Handy Helpers initiative is temporarily paused until restrictions on group activities have been eased.
