Welcome to Hands on london
Founded in 2010, our mission has been to Inspire and Empower people to Be The Change they want to see. Almost every day HandsOn London volunteers are out supporting Homeless Shelters, Soup Kitchens, Food Banks, Older People’s projects, Children’s Centres and a host of other community groups.
HandsOn London Partners with local charities, community organisations, schools, parks and gardens to help with the challenges facing our city. We provide high-quality projects and volunteer support, creating opportunities for people to give their time. Our staff and volunteers work with each community partner to identify where help would be most beneficial.
During the summer, our Brighten Up London Campaign inspires over 2,600 people to enhance our Green Spaces, Community Gardens, Parks, Charity Farms creating new spaces, improving existing ones and making our city a better place for everyone.
During November, we all come together for Wrap Up London. Having just completed its 9th Year, the campaign has collected and distributed over 158,000 warm coats for those most in need. Almost entirely volunteer lead, the campaign attracts support from across the country and has inspired volunteers in 24 Towns and cities to launch their own collection as part of the growing Wrap Up Family.
HandsOn London gratefully acknowledges the wonderful generosity of all of its sponsors and donors. None of this would be possible without them. We would especially like to thank our Advisory Board members who have generously donated their time to help expand our organisation.
A very special thank you too, to our generous corporate donor, William Blair.
