Garden & Bedroom Makeovers

WellChild Helping Hands is a home improvement programme which, with volunteers from local companies, transforms gardens and bedrooms for children and young people with exceptional health needs across the UK.

Families caring for a child or young person with complex care needs often find that projects in the home go unfinished as time and finances are so stretched. Many children and young people live in homes which are not suitable for their needs. WellChild’s Helping Hands programme addresses this by using company volunteers to complete garden and bedroom makeovers – making life at home safer.

We are now piloting ‘A Little Hand’, providing smaller ‘one-day’ projects to tackle common problems and needs that families have in their garden or home – from installing medicine storage, to wheelchair friendly flooring.

The volunteering days can be used as a fantastic team building experience or as an opportunity for relationship building with suppliers or clients.
