This month, we at Warm and Well In North Yorkshire, continue to highlight the important work our fantastic partners are doing during COVID19.

The Harrogate Easier Living Project (HELP) provides a range of services to help older or vulnerable people across the Harrogate district to remain living independently in their own homes. With the assistance of over 100 dedicated volunteers we offer:

- Volunteer befriending in the home.
- Information and Signposting
- Voluntary car driving services to help people struggling with transport to attend medical appointments, make social visits, attend day centres and make essential trips such as shopping or banking.
- ‘Help at Home’ gardening, decorating and odd job service for people unable to do this themselves
