HELPING HANDS COMMUNITY PROJECT

Helping Hands provide practical support & care in Kenilworth, Leamington Spa & Warwick. We support low income individuals & families, victims of domestic abuse, local homeless & vulnerably housed people. We aim to provide a hand up both through practical support like the soup kitchen and House 2 Home project and provide opportunities to increase motivation, self esteem and to become more effective members of our society.
