Maidenhead Care - making a difference in Maidenhead for over 30 years
"When all other pleas for help went unanswered, Care was there... and responded"
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 3 miles of Maidenhead Town Centre, outside this area help is available from other similar organisations which we have listed here>>.
What we do
Our volunteers donate their time freely to provide
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 here>>.

Do you have any spare time and would like to help in the local community? A few hours of your time can make all the difference, we explain more here>>.

"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.
My Husband 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.
