Who we help

The League of the Helping Hand helps those who are living on a very low income, receiving the appropriate welfare benefits and who have exhausted all other funding sources including statutory funding, occupational, local and specialist charities. We help those: with physical and diagnosed mental health conditions, learning disabilities and people caring for an adult or child with a disability.

Assistance is offered to all ages; help for children should be made through a parent/legal guardian (as the recipient).
