Established in 2007, Here to Help (SW England) is a Community Interest Company that offers practical support for the elderly. They provide travel for shopping trips, hospital appointments, and leisure activities, and support them in their homes, from basic cleaning, to cooking and offering friendship.
Here to Help, now with 3 employees and 18 volunteers, aims to fill the gap which was created by government cut backs during the recession. It is totally market driven and receives no government or charitable funding. Even so, it has seen success, with a turnover of £77,000 in year 7.
