Who We Are

We are surrounded by people who need help to get back on their feet. When we help and support others, we make our lives and theirs better. Extended Hands is making a difference by reaching out, accepting, supporting, helping and lifting its service beneficiaries who just need a hand-up not a hand-out.

The organisation provides care and support in compassionate and practical ways and aims to help, serve and encourage women and girls who have lost their sense of hope and meaning to live and thrive again.

Studies have shown that women are key players towards world change and that when they are fully engaged and empowered society benefits enormously.

Extended Hands is investing in the lives of these women and girls, especially those who are needy and vulnerable. Based in Peterborough, Extended Hands fosters social inclusion, integration and transformation; promoting the well-being of women and girls by providing social, economic, emotional and practical support.
