Transforming home & garden spaces

WellChild Helping Hands works with teams of corporate volunteers to create safe, accessible and sensory garden and bedroom spaces for children and young people with complex health needs.

The safety of our families, volunteers and staff is our top priority and the current COVID-19 restrictions and social distancing guidelines mean that it is not possible for us to operate safely. We have made the difficult decision to temporarily close Helping Hands, and at present we are unable to accept or consider any new applications, respond to enquiries about the service, or offer corporate volunteering opportunities.

As the situation improves and lockdown restrictions can be eased, we will get back to working on projects just as soon as it is safe to do so. At that stage we will focus on helping those families who we had pledged to support before COVID-19 hit.

We are using this time to make improvements to our internal processes and, when we relaunch Helping Hands, we will be able to make decisions on applications much more quickly and deliver a faster, more responsive service for families caring for those children and young people facing the most serious and complex health challenges.

If you would like to be kept informed of developments and notified when applications or volunteering opportunities reopen, please fill in your email address below and we will contact you as soon as we have an update.
