Become a Here to Help Volunteer

Since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, HADCA has been supporting people in Harrogate and Ripon to help them stay safe and well at home. We recruited hundreds of volunteers who were able to spare a couple of hours a week (or more or less) to look out for people in our communities struggling without local family and friends to support them.

Our fantastic team of Here to HELP volunteers have carried out over 8,000 tasks for those isolating or shielding and over 6,000 hours of volunteering at the vaccination centres in Harrogate & Ripon .

Our team is making a real difference to the lives of local people and we have been busy recruiting more people to help, including people who are willing to be volunteer drivers in the Harrogate, Knaresborough and Ripon areas and befrienders in the Ripon area, as people are now going out and about, reconnecting with their communities. 

If you're over 18 years of age you can sign up at the links below to become a Here To Help Volunteer. Thank you - we will be in touch soon.
