About us

HANDS
Help a Neighbour in Distress 

HANDS is the neighbourhood care group covering Twickenham and St. Margaret’s. We provide voluntary, practical support in non-specialist fields to those in need, especially the older, frail, isolated and housebound. 

Hear what some of the people we help have to say about HANDS:

" Appreciate your kindness and getting me out of the four walls"

"Thank you for the most enjoyable afternoon yesterday and also for the lifts I have had this year"

"HANDS means such a lot to someone like me, who is old & whose family is far away!"

"I was most grateful for you arranging for a volunteer to stay with my wife when I went to visit Kingston Hospital. Thank god there are people like you & your volunteers willing to help where needed".

Volunteers
We are supported by a range of volunteers of all ages from a variety of backgrounds. Some volunteers make a regular commitment whilst others prefer to be flexible, so they help us when they have some spare time. The choice is up to the individual and of course any time offered is hugely appreciated.

Volunteering can be rewarding and is a good way to get to know people in the local area and to be involved with the local community. Volunteers make a real difference and without a doubt make life better for a number of people.
