Helping Hands was established in 2009 and work within the wider Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Council area. We provide a holistic wraparound support service for beneficiaries from furniture provision to counselling services. Our services have been making a huge difference in the lives of around 2000 people each month within our local community for over 14 years.

We have developed a range of services to provide a holistic support system which enables us to support as many people as possible, through areas such as; furniture/food/clothing provision, emergency heating, counselling, befriending, mentoring, CV preparation, budgeting advice, training (through operational café/workshop), and volunteering opportunities. Our goal is to journey with people regardless of the challenges that they are facing. For example, if someone requires a piece of furniture they we will support them with that (sometimes they only need support in this way), however, often the reason they need practical support is due to other challenges. Therefore, they will then be offered any of our other services in a wraparound approach should they want/require them. We want to give people a hand up rather than a hand out.
