About us

Here to support the local community –  join in today!

Hampton & Hampton Hill Voluntary Care is a charity that was set up by local people in 1974 to be a good neighbour to the local community supporting people who were socially isolated due to their age, infirmity, mobility restrictions or other personal circumstances.

We continue to pursue our founders’ aims in providing help and support to those in need, complementing both statutory services and those available from other providers with whom we work in close partnership.

We have managed Greenwood Community Centre on behalf of Hampton Fund (formerly Hampton Fuel Allotments Charity) since 1992. The Centre provides offices for the charity and a base for many of our community projects and activities designed to promote the health and wellbeing of the community.

Community Services

Check out our services aimed at supporting you or someone you know who lives locally

Hampton and Hampton Hill Voluntary Care provide a range of community services as part of the charity’s objectives.

Registered Clients

To use our services we ask you to complete a simple registration form and make an annual donation of £20 to help towards the costs of providing our services.

Some of our community services are funded through local contracts with other organisations and therefore, in some instances, the annual donation is not as necessary. So if you feel you cannot afford the to make a £20 donation please do chat to us as we still may be able to help.

Some additional charges are required to cover the costs of specific activities, such as our weekly excursions and shopping buses.

befriendingSERVICE

We support local people with regualr visits or telephone calls from one of our volunteers. Discover more about:

shoppingSERVICES

We can support our people with their weekly shop with a volunteer who will shop on their behalf or by using our weekly shopping bus that will take clients to local supermarkets.

getDigital

Not everyone has access to digital services. Our volunteers will help and we can provide equipment on short term loan enabling clients to join in with groups and activites on-line.

walkBUDDY

We have a group of volunteers who are able to support you in getting out for a regular walk and motivate you to take some gentle exercise. We can organise this on both a 1 to 1 or small group basis. The walks are targeted at the ability of each person or group.

Volunteers are not able to offer physical support, so you will need to be able to walk and manage yourself independently.

communityTRANSPORT

We run two community minibuses in partnership with Richmond & Kingston Accessible Transport (RAKAT). The service is supported by volunteer drivers and passenger assistants, taking people on regular shopping trips, excursions and to local groups. Find out more.

We also have a team of volunteers who use their own cars to help take people to health appointments, social activities, faith groups and community services. Find out more.

getSOCIAL

Stay connected with others and help maintain your general wellbeing. When you find it hard to get out and about on traditional public transport we may be able to help.

We run weekly excursions on our minibuses and seasonal events at Greenwood Community Centre for our registered clients.

on yourDOORSTEP

For those who find it hard to leave the house we offer services to your very own doorstep. We have volunteer cycle couriers to help in a variety of ways, including:

  • Collection and delivery of prescriptions
  • Welfare parcels – such as activity/craft packs and seasonal treats
  • Food parcels – we can source food parcels for some of our clients
  • Book deliveries for the Book Club
  • Jigsaw Library – delivered and collected once you have finished.

birthdayPROJECT

As a way of showing our registered clients we’re thinking of them, we make sure they receive a card on their birthday. Cards are handmade by a group of our volunteers and include a reminder that we are here to help if they need us. 

mensGROUP

This group offers local men the chance to meet weekly at Greenwood Community Centre for a range of activities including quizzes, keep-fit, discussions, craft and games. The group is open to anyone but has a focus on activities and discussions surrounding issues and subjects most suitable for men. Find out more.

womensGROUP

This is a newly formed group and echoes the same structure as the group for men.

The group is also open to anyone but has a focus on activities and discussions surrounding issues and subjects most suitable for women.
