A local charity based in Sheffield and North Derbyshire supporting terminally ill people of all ages with care and equipment at home.
Last year we provide over 3,000 hours of care and 200 pieces of equipment to people in need of our support.
Helen’s Trust receives no statutory funding and relies entirely on voluntary donations.
With your support we can help even more people like Jenny*….
When Jenny* was diagnosed with cancer she wanted to keep life as normal as possible for her 3 small children.
She had no family to support her but Helen’s Trust, working closely with her GP and social services, were able to help.
We funded childcare while Jenny was having treatment, so she didn’t have to worry about the children on the days she went into hospital.
Later, as Jenny began to deteriorate and was no longer able to care for her own personal needs, we funded an assisted bathing service twice a week.
In the last stages of her illness, Jenny wanted to be downstairs with her children as much as possible and Helen’s Trust bought her a reclining chair to make that time as comfortable as possible.
