Helping Hand Waterford, located in the heart of Waterford City, is a charitable organisation dedicated to helping those in need. With the dedication of our volunteers and partners, we strive to improve the lives of everyone who needs help within our community. We provide a drop in centre serving hot meals, food, tea and coffee's 5 nights a week in St. Patricks Gateway Centre. In addition to providing hot meals, we also provide sleeping bags, tents, toiletries, clean clothing and advocacy support to all homeless, rough sleepers and those in need. In the months of November and December we run a shoe box and hamper campaign for families and individuals, the homeless and rough sleepers in order to try and make the festive season a little bit happier. Contact us to see what you can do to bring about positive change.

Due to the recent Public Health concerns re: Covid-19, Helping Hand Waterford has continued to meet the needs of the homeless and those people and families who are in emergency accommodation. Throughout this outbreak, Helping Hand Waterford has maintained a service, Monday to Friday at St, Patrick's Gateway Centre providing meals to those who have attended our service. Unfortunately, we have had to reduce our hours and normal operations to take into account, best practice to protect our clients and volunteers alike. Our new opening times, are 7pm to 7.30pm, Monday to Friday ONLY. Helping Hand Waterford is committed to fulfilling our service and serving those people who, in these times, need extra support and care. We would like to thank all those people, communities and businesses that support us in the work we do, now more than ever. Helping Hand Waterford will continue to reach out to those who need a helping hand.
