Who are we?
Maidenhead Care is local charity providing Good
Neighbour help and
practical support for the elderly, unwell
or disadvantaged people of Maidenhead.
One of our important roles
is to provide transport for those who are unable to use public transport
to get to medical appointments. We can also provide a friendly ear for
someone who is lonely and would welcome a visit from a volunteer and
a cup of tea together.
You can read more about us here>>.
Unfortunately we can only consider requests from people living within
three miles of Maidenhead Town Centre, outside this area help is available
from other similar
organisations which we have listed
What we do
Our volunteers donate their time freely
How does it work?
Call 07538 418448 on weekdays between
9:00am and 5:00pm and talk to the Duty Officer. They will discuss with
you your requirements and circumstances either over the phone or arrange
for a volunteer to visit.
Once you are accepted as a client
you just ring and ask for assistance and the duty officer will arrange
for one of our volunteers to help. More details are provided
Can you help?

"I wish to thank you at Maidenhead Care for your wonderful
service which I used when I broke my wrist recently. The service provided
to get me to hospital and then later for shopping trips was just what
I needed. The drivers were very friendly and courteous.
and I knew the Reverend Peter Hudson a long time ago when he first founded
the charity. It is good to know that it is still going strong.
Thank you most sincerely for all your help.
