Mental Health Support - Helping Hands Project

The Helping Hands Project run by the charity Jigsaw is a programme that offers volunteer support for individuals and families who are/have experienced domestic violence and abuse. Practical support may include helping to settle into a new area, establishing local community links, accessing local services, attending court or other appointments such as housing, solicitors and health. Emotional support may consist of meeting up with a service user on a weekly basis for a cup of coffee or providing a listening ear over the phone at an agreed time.
