HELPING HANDS, is an Independent Living and Mobility Aid Shop in Dawlish. Our small team of Gill, Tracy and Jenny welcome you with a friendly, confidential Service.

HELPING HANDS - serving our Community since 1985 

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 and more evident that so many of our Clients were wanting more and more "practical aids", so that they could remain in their own homes.

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 we decided to bite the proverbial bullet and buy a larger, more suitable shop property in the Town Centre, and that is where we have been since 1999 - serving our Community - it has been very hard work at times, but the ultimate aim has never changed to this day, to be a practical help in whatever way we can, to our Clients/Customers.


Our shop stocks a range of solutions for Independent Living.

We also have a wide and varied range of Mobility Equipment for HIRE for long or short periods.


Everyone is welcome to pop into our Shop and discuss any items they may require -confidentially - that we might be able to help them with.


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.
