"To care for those who once cared for us is one of the highest honours"

Welcome to Help-Mate

Help-Mate evolved from the joy found in befriending and supporting a neighbour with various household tasks.

If you are looking for assistance and support within your home we can help. Whether you are working and needing help with all those jobs that you end up having to do at the weekend or whether you are retired and feeling in need of companionship and support, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I am happy to help on a 'one off ' occasion or to offer support on a regular basis.

Please see my services page for further information about the tasks we can undertake although this is not a finite list so please just ask if there something you need.

But in all that we do, please know that we will offer respect, compassion, hope, encouragement and companionship. 


I am 88 and I live alone. I tried to deal with life's domestic chores but I sometimes failed. Then, two years or so ago, Jos Smith came to my rescue. Jos is a charming, intelligent, energetic, caring and reliable person who can garden, shop, cook, clean or anything else as required. She is the answer to all my needs and is also my friend. I recommend her to anyone.
