Help at Hand app

A free website and mobile app to help you access practical and emotional support in your community.

A digital directory

The Help at Hand app is a digital directory of resources which is easily accessible to you and your loved ones.

The app will quickly direct you to community services, organisations and groups that best suit your needs and preferences.

Our directory includes a wide range of resources including befriending schemes, exercise classes and coffee mornings. There’s something for everyone!

The interface is simple to navigate, there’s no need to login or sign up, your data is not stored by the app. The creator of the app, Andrew Kellard, has worked hard to ensure it is accessible and user-friendly.

We are proud to be the first Hospice Charity to sign up to the Help at Hand app

We were delighted to work on this project with John Lewis Partner Sally Milligan as part of the John Lewis Golden Jubilee Trust. During her 20 week secondment Sally supported us with a community mapping exercise where she identified and connected with local organisations. Our partnership with the Help at Hand app is the result of this meaningful work.
