Our Story

Edinburgh is one of the wealthiest cities in one of the wealthiest states on earth. It’s a place of opportunity and hope. A place where millions have travelled to visit or make their home. Unfortunately, it is also a place of inequality and a place where many children and vulnerable families are struggling. Many Edinburgh citizens face obstacles such as cuts to services, unemployment, poor nutrition, low literacy, shortage of physical activity, problems with physical and mental health wellbeing and lack of basic needs.

Many people want to help, but feel the problems are just too big. Helping Hands provides the strategy and infrastructure to make a start. We offer people the opportunity to help other people. Through Solidarity Not Charity.
