If you are aged 60 and over or are younger and disabled we may be able to help you with transport and other tasks.
Volunteers use their own cars and normally wait for you to complete your appointment or shopping. They may be able to give assistance where necessary. There is no charge for waiting as our drivers are all volunteers but there is a fuel charge for the transport itself.

Helping Hands Charity Shop
Our shop is in the High Street, Clacton near the main post office and opposite Sainsburys.
We have been open since April 2012 and welcome good quality contributions to sell.
The Helping Hands office is situated at the back of the shop and is open on weekday mornings only. All bookings should continue to be made by telephone during opening hours.
If you have had a problem with aggressive doorstep salesman or unreliable builders we may be able to help avoid any future problems. Our Guiding Hands scheme will find an experienced volunteer to help you negotiate for large purchases and maintenance work.
Guiding Hands also has a list of reputable companies that have
been recommended by users of the scheme and volunteers.
To join the scheme or
enquire about joining, please call the office during office hours
and request a pack. Alternatively you may download a copy of our
membership form and leaflet.
