The League of the Helping Hand (LHH) was founded in 1908 by Miss Edith Ashby who wanted to address the suffering of those who had very little to live on.  She was adamant from the first that all help should be given in the most kindly and friendly way possible.  Since Miss Ashby's initial efforts, the charity has evolved through two world wars, numerous changes of government and the vagaries of the welfare system - the ethos of assistance with compassion however, remains central to the work of the charity.
