Home Help for the

Elderly, Parents and Everyone.

Welcome to the Need A Little Hand homepage, Need A Little Hand is a home help business offering extra help to elderly clients, parent , we also offer a local cleaning service to everyone. We are based in St Ives and offer our extra help service in St Ives, Huntingdon and surrounding villages (Fenstanton, Hilton, Hemmingfords, Godmanchester, Fen Drayton, Swavesey, Longstanton, Bluntisham, Somersham, Houghton and Wyton, Kings Ripton and even into the surrounding villages of Cambridge)

The reason our extra help for elderly service is so successful is due to its flexibility, our reliable friendly staff and our professional service. Our clients can choose from a menu of options, the client may change the options they choose each week e.g. cleaning and gardening one week, cleaning and transport to hospital the next week. Our menu of options ranges from one off cleaning/regular cleaning, transport, meal preparation, dog walking, help with technology, providing company, gardening etc.  Our Staff at Need A Little Hand are all experienced, fully vetted and DBS checked. We offer the same home helper each week to our clients, this helps build a longstanding relationship with trust and understanding.

In addition to our extra help service we offer a local cleaning service. Whether you're too busy to clean or just find cleaning a chore, we are here to help. We provide all of our own equipment and cleaning products, our home helpers are highly motivated and trained to our 1 2 3  cleaning standard, this ensures you get the best service possible from our Need A Little Hand team.




Need A little Hand was established in the main to meet the needs of our elderly clients. We noticed a gap in the market for this age group, we provide extra help to senior citizens which in turn allows our clients to remain independent and living at home for as long as possible.  We help with many aspects of our clients daily routine taking away the worry and stress of jobs that have become difficult to manage.

Once our extra help for the elderly was established we realised we could offer a similar service to parents.  Although their needs were different many of our service options were similar. We offer home help to new mums, parents that may be unwell or recovering from an operation.  We also have clients that just need extra help at home whilst they head back to work. Our service offering allows our clients to choose from our menu of options and pick the best package for them. It’s this flexibility and reliable friendly staff that has made this aspect of our business so worthwhile.
