Monday 12th April 2021, saw Step 2 towards the Government's road map out of the current National Lockdown.

As well as the previous restrictions having been lifted we now see life getting back to some kind of normality with further lockdown easing taking place.

For a more detailed list of what is now allowed please check the website.


Although we still have some restrictions to adhere too, the new changes show positive steps on the road to a full recovery. 

With this in mind, we are now open on Saturday mornings and we are busy taking bookings for Mobility Equipment hire for Spring and Summer 2021.










If you are booking a holiday in Dawlish or the surrounding area and are looking to hire mobility equipment then please give us a call during our opening hours and we will be happy to help.

We will continue to be Covid-19 secure and will comply with the Government's guidance on managing the risk of Covid-19 in store.


We kindly ask when you pop in that you maintain a safe distance, wear a face covering, scan the QR code situated at the main door and use the hand sanitisers provided.

This will help keep our customers and staff safe as possible.

About Helping Hands

HELPING HANDS of Dawlish was originally established in October 1985 in response to a need for a reliable and trustworthy Independent Living and Mobility Aid provider. Over the ensuing years it became more evident that so many of our Clients were wanting a wider range of "practical aids" so that they could remain in their own homes independently.

Seeing this need, we rented a small local shop and further developed a Retail Base in our lovely home town of Dawlish. After 2 years it became clear that a larger, more suitable property was needed in the Town Centre and so we moved to our High Street shop, where we have remained since 1999 - serving our Community.

It has been a very rewarding journey and the ultimate aim has never changed to this day, providing practical help in whatever way we can, to our Clients/Customers.

Our shop stocks a range of solutions for Independent Living and a wide and varied range of Mobility HIRE Equipment, whether you are looking for long term or short term hire.

Everyone is very welcome to pop into our Shop and discuss any items they may need, confidentially.

We continue to Thank and Praise Our Lord for his continued support. For each client and customer he sends to us, we thank Him. We know only too well, how difficult it is in this economic climate to run an Independent Shop, but we pray we will be able to serve you, all, as long as our Customers and Clients need us.
