About Us

Thorpe Helping Hands is an grassroots, volunteer led initiative supporting residents in the NR7 and NR1 areas.

We aim to provide relief to everyone affected by COVID-19 by taking requests from residents who contact us directly to ask for support as well as referrals from other agencies.

We are currently working with Pilling Park Community Centre to support school families and other residents in the Thorpe Hamlet area, we are currently able to assist with food, sanitary protection and other essential items.

We are encouraging a local response to the pandemic, with neighbours supporting each other. Ideally, each street or group of streets will have its own volunteer team.

We can offer support with weekly shopping, prescriptions, posting mail, dog walking, and we can also offer a check and chat service, for people who would like a regular, friendly phone conversation.

If you need something, want to volunteer, donate or be part of your local street initiative please let us know via thorpehelpinghands@gmail.com

All volunteers use hand sanitiser and adopt strict safeguarding measures and social distancing. South Norfolk Help Hub has info on COVID-19:https://www.south-norfolk.gov.uk/coronavirus-infmation
