Who we are?
We are a community based women outreach team propelled by love, to support and serve women and girls. We address these women as "OUR FRIENDS"
We desire to reach out, extend a hand of practical support, friendship and fellowship to women, by creating an environment of socialising, empowerment, skills development and fun activities.
To ensure that no woman suffers in silence, feels lonely or unloved.
Extended Hands is a not for profit organisation, whose mission is "to promote social, emotional and practical support to women".
How we work?
Creating awareness of the danger of isolation and loneliness for women through community outreach program.
Identifying and supporting women (young/old) who are at risk of loneliness and isolation.
Offering preventative, proactive early intervention help, to women who are at risk of developing illness such as postnatal depression, stress and anxiety.
Advocating for at-risk women, by encouraging families to provide support to their isolated loved ones.
Providing a listening ear and moral support to all our Extended Hands friends.
Referring to other organisations and local government services, counsellors and groups of faith for specialist support.
Promoting the efficiency of other charities and local government by working alongside them, and providing a service for them to refer women in need.
Working in collaboration with other organisations with similar or complimentary services.
To reach out to all women who need our support regardless of social class, race, religion, ethnicity, nationality, age or sexual orientation.
To carry out our work in a way that is respectful to the individual’s rights, preferences, values and privacy.

About the fundraiser
Peterborough, United Kingdom
Extended Hands did a 5K run around Ferry Meadows to raise much needed funds to support their outreach work within the community. The work they do within the community is extremely valuable, without them.. I can safely say I wouldn't be around today. Love & Peace.. Lou ♥
