The Helping Hands Group

The Helping Hands Group opened its doors in 2011 and was the brain child of Suzanne Gilby who had worked in the industry for 26 years at that point. Suzanne wanted to create a service that solely focused on barrier free individual progression within the most important areas, independence, life skills and work experience to anyone aged 16+ with a learning or associated difficulty. 

Back in 1994 Suzanne's mother in law had a sudden brain haemorrhage which in turn left her with severe learning and physical disabilities and back then there was no such service available to her, instead she had to spend her time in a nursing home. Suzanne's main ambition was to ensure that no other family had to arrive at such a brick wall moving forward. The Helping Hands Group was therefore founded in the loving memory of Karen Gilby.

 

Our service offers Personal Development Day Opportunities, to adults in Peterborough, Wisbech and the surrounding areas with a wide range of learning/physical disabilities including Autism, Sensory Impairment, Brain Injury, PMLD and Down Syndrome to name but a few.

​Our service covers every aspect of development to assist with all individuals and their families that choose The Helping Hands Group as their way forward.

We offer Education, Training in independence skills, Activities, Work Experience, Massage, Physiotherapy, Aromatherapy, Arts, Crafts, Cooking, Enterprise sessions, Horticulture, IT and even Hydrotherapy all from our well adapted centres. 


Each centre offer a range of attendance options, education 38 weeks, Peterborough (up to) 47 weeks and Wisbech up to 50 weeks of the year. 

 

We aim to create the perfect environment for the users to help maintain and build independence, structure, routine and build confidence through tailor making each programme, therefore no two programmes will be the same.

 

We pride ourselves on pushing boundaries and offering limitless learning, through creating new and fresh opportunities on a regular basis, one of the benefits of being a family run business.

With high standards and an excellent reputation built up over a decade, our passion and drive  is being able to give everyone the opportunity to live an improved way of life.

 

We offer a service that is the first of it’s kind in Peterborough and Wisbech with our in house hydrotherapy facilities, huge onsite sensory garden and the large variety of activities we provide.

We look forward to welcoming you to the thhg family.
