About Us:

The Harrogate Easier Living Project and HELP Ripon & Rural provides services to assist those who are either older, vulnerable and/or living with long-term ill health or disabilities to stay safe and well supported at home. We provide holistic support to people across the District to enable them to remain living independently. Our services include:

  • 'Help at Home' gardening, decorating and odd job service for people unable to do the work themselves or could not afford a professional tradesperson
  • Voluntary car driving services to enable those who can't access public tranposrt due to rural location and/or limited mobility to attend medical appointments, make social visits, attend day centres and make essential trips such as shopping or banking. Help to get out and about with the help of a volunteer befriender
  • Home befriending visits in Ripon and the surrounding rural areas providing a friendly listening ear to people who are socially isolated
  • Here to HELP drop in information sessions at different venues across the district for people who want company or to find out where to turn for community support and activities.

Our clients tell us it is the little things we support them with, like a lift to the GP surgery or changing a light bulb, that makes them feel more confident about living independently. Our services also help people at risk of loneliness and/or social isolation. Not only do our events and transport services help our clients stay connected with their local communities, our wonderful volunteers also offer much needed social contact and provide a listening ear to clients who may otherwise rarely get out and about.

Money raised via The Local Lotto will go towards recruiting and training new volunteers, new equipment to enable our Help at Home team to work more efficiently and towards the general running costs of this vital service.

We need your help so we can continue to offer our service to some of the most vulnerable people in our District.

Thank you for your support and good luck!
