Bissoe: Hidden Help

Hidden help’s vision is really very simple; its aim is to reach families who have ‘fallen through the net’. By collecting donations of unwanted, but still serviceable household goods we are able to repair, up-cycle and then redistribute them to those that are in dire need. Our clients are wide ranging. From single parent families leaving the various shelters and hostels in the local area, to the elderly, vulnerable, long term sick, asylum seekers etc. We do not means test or judge, we simply meet need where it is shown to us through partnering with the various local agencies for whom seeing need is a day to day occurrence. .

Many of the items we provide are straightforward household goods and appliances. Fridges, cookers. beds, mattresses, linens, kitchenware, sofas, chairs, fact anything that you need when setting up home. There really are children sleeping on the floor for the want of a bed or mattress in Cornwall. It’s hard to believe isn’t it?

We try very hard not to over promise and under deliver; we simply do what we can.
