  • Escorting people to local parks, shopping and mosques.
  • Carrying users’ shopping from shops
  • Prompting medication
  • Making beds, preparing breakfast

Staff speak English, Bengali (both Sylheti and standard Bangladeshi) and Urdu. Personal Welfare Benefit checks can also be arranged through St Hilda’s Advice Service.

Adults in Bangladeshi and other communities in need of domiciliary care support.

To use our services:
Users are currently mostly referred through social services. However, we very much welcome Personal Budget Holders. Please contact Enayet Sarwar (Elders Care Manager) by phone or email. We will then ask for a copy of your assessment and support plan, and complete our own assessment (usually by a home visit) before you start attending. This is to make sure that we can meet your needs.
