Helping Hands

Helping Hands

The service offers a reliable and comprehensive menu of practical, emotional and social support solutions to enable people to live as independently as possible in their own homes.

An experienced member of staff will visit you to carry out a holistic assessment and discuss your wishes and needs. Our service can contribute to a reablement package.

Age UK Sutton offers the Helping Hands service to help people stay happy, healthy and independent both inside and outside their home

As people live longer and want to remain independent at home, reliable, caring services are required to help with all those daily tasks which become a little more difficult.

How the service works

Our coordinator will visit you at home to complete a holistic assessment and discuss your needs, hours, cost and any other requirements.


If you would like to take up the service, we will then match you to one of our Helping Hands. We take into consideration personality and requirements when making a match, as having a good rapport with your Helping Hand is important to us. 


Crucially, all our Helping Hands are thoroughly referenced, interviewed personally and are police vetted by undergoing a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check.
