Our main aim is to make the unaffordable affordable. We aim to supply fit for purpose household goods at an incredibly low affordable cost.

We did it

New stretch target

We will be able to buy and keep supplying our essential starter pack to the most vulnerable in our community


What we at Helping Hand G78 need help with:
We supply at no cost to people who are referred to us by any Social Service Team, Women's Aid or East Renfrewshire Council with a Essential Starter Pack.

The packs contain: 

1x Toaster.

1x Kettle. 

1x Set of Cutlery. 

1x Can Opener.

4x Dinner Plates. 

4x Bowls. 

4x Mugs.


Children will also be supplied with appropriate safety cutlery and plates when applicable.

These items totaled together cost £31.50.

We buy these items out of our own pockets but we are struggling to meet demands and would like a little help from donors so that we may continue to supply these packs to those in high need.


In the future  Helping Hand G78 are hoping to offer free of charge,  £10 of Gas and £5 of Electricity.  

This service will only be offered under certain circumstances.  

Our aim is to hopefully alleviate the stress of poverty and to help them get started in the new home.


We aim to help combat social isolation by offering volunteering opportunities and work experience within the local community. 


We offer a number of services that benefits our local G78 and surrounding community of which we have detailed below:


We supply those in need with fit for purpose household goods at an incredibly low affordable cost.

 

We are contributing environmentally to help reduce landfill.  We source and reuse furniture that would otherwise contribute to it.  This has a great benefit to our local communities of G78 and surrounding areas.


We insure that furniture sourced is to a high standard and is fit for purpose.  It is also cleaned to a high standard or repaired if required before being offered to members of the local community or those in need due to unforeseen circumstances.


We offer a free Procurement (Sourcing) service to find household items that are urgently needed.

We also offer a delivery and pick up service which can be related to our procurement service of household items. 

Our service is offered at a very low affordable cost for those in the local community from £5.00 which helps alleviate the stress of the affordability of a Man and Van service.
