Who we are Our supporters Our supporters When you create a meaningful experience, when you bring about meaningful change you find like-minded people and organisations that want to be a part of that in some way. But the charity sector in particular is an incredibly crowded place with a seemingly infinite choice for those looking to contribute to the good that is being done. And it’s for this reason that we so deeply appreciate those who make a considered decision to support us at Hands. Whatever your level of contribution, it is meaningful and it contributes to the lasting and sustainable change we are bringing about. Please contact us if you are interested in discussing partnership or sponsorship opportunities.
