Become a Here to Help Volunteer

HADCA is a registered charity working all year round to support charities, volunteers and communities in Harrogate district. During the COVID-19 outbreak, we are supporting people to help others and stay safe, working with our partners and established charity and community networks.  

Over the coming weeks, support will be needed to fill gaps and look out for older and the most vulnerable people in our communities, without family and friends to support them.

If you're over 18 years of age, healthy and not at high risk  (see NHS guidelines ) you can sign up at the links below to become a Here To Help Volunteer and help others, with tasks such as urgent food shopping for the most vulnerable and providing back-up to local charities delivering vital services, as necessary. Thank you for very much for your interest.   

We have been delighted to have such a fantastic response to our call for volunteers.  We would still very much welcome applications from volunteers in Ripon and the surrounding area.  Please apply here:

At the moment, we have enough volunteers in and around Harrogate to help the numbers of people who are asking for support.  However as people return to work, this may change.

If you would like to leave your name and email address here, we will contact you if we need more volunteers over the coming months.

We will store your name and email address securely, we will only use it to contact you about volunteering for us and we will only keep it until 30th September 2020.    

In the meantime, here are some ways that you could consider supporting your community

Many local charities need people to give time, not just now, but in the future. Take a look at our HADCA Volunteering Directory to see the range of roles available and to enquire. But please bear in mind that services offered will often be changing because of the outbreak.     

If you know someone who would like to volunteer but who isn't online, please let them know they can call our team on 01423 813096.   

You can find some general advice regarding community involvement during this time on our Looking out for your neighbours and staying safe page, which is reviewed daily.  

In other parts of Harrogate District, local hubs Masham Community Office Nidderdale Plus , Boroughbridge Community Care and Knaresborough Connectors are supporting their communities.
