Hands Together LUDLOW aims to network with a wide range of caring agencies and charitable organisations to ensure that people get the help they need when they need it.
This could be by making first contact with an appropriate agency, or it may be that an agency has clients for whom they do not have the necessary resources. By referring these people to Hands Together LUDLOW we will either put them in contact with a more appropriate agency or use one of our own volunteers to provide short-term assistance.
It is not always appropriate for our volunteers to tackle every job that may be referred to us so it is hoped that, as agencies find that they are able to work more closely together, referrals to Hands Together LUDLOW will be only the tip of the iceberg.
Sometimes local businesses are keen to help out by providing products and services. Networking gives them the opportunities to contribute to their local community by targeting those they are in a position to assist. Networking also connects agencies and businesses together so that they can support each other.
Networking also creates opportunities for other charities and our Project Groups to develop the assistance and services they aim to provide.
