The Helpful Bureau

Helping people to remain living safely and
independently in their own homes.

Home Services

Our Home Services provide older people with help with virtually all domestic chores from sweeping to preparing meals.


Our Maintenance Service provides help with various maintenance activities from gardening to home decorating. 


Our befriending scheme provides older people with visitation from our friendly volunteers, to bring just a little bit of happiness to someone who potentially doesn’t see or have contact with anyone else.


Our wheelchair accessible transportation service facilitates the access of shopping outlets, medical appointments and other support groups and social clubs to older people.


We run a variety of social groups for people to enjoy. Click below to see what we offer.

If we don’t offer what you’re looking for, please give us a ring and we will point you to somewhere that does, or we can help set one up!!


We offer a variety of volunteering opportunities for anyone who would like to donate their time to help our charity. 

Thank you to all of our current funders for supporting our charity.
