ASD Helping Hands becomes a Community Hot Spot for those struggling with keeping warm this winter

ASD Helping Hands have become the latest in a long list of organisations, business and charities opening their doors to everyone who is struggling to keep warm this winter with the rise in energy, food costs and the general price of living.

This has been made possible with support from Norfolk Community Foundation via grants from Norfolk County Council and the Surviving Winter Fund.

Community Hot spots have been funded across Norfolk for those who need to use them. Using the map below you can search for your local community hot spot.

ASD Helping Hands will be opening their offices between the hours of 10:00 and 14:00 each Tuesday and Friday from the 30th of December until March 2023.

We will offer a warm non-judgemental environment with free hot drinks and if available snacks. We will also be on hand to provide any advice around the cost of living schemes or benefit and welfare advice that you may be able to claim to support yourself and your families.

Children are welcome and we do have a selection of games available for them to play with and a library from which books can be borrowed.

Our office is fully accessible with access to a disabled toilet and baby changing facilities.

We are based at the Breckland Business Centre, Dereham which has onsite parking and more parking within walking distance. We look forward to seeing you, follow the signs for ASD Helping Hands, ring our doorbell and we will be right with you!
