Looking after the mental wellbeing of recipients and our fitting teams
Helping Hands has a registered psychologist on staff to ensure the mental wellbeing of both our distribution teams and the people they seek to help. Our psychologist is available to help hand individuals (and their families) who may be struggling to adjust following the loss of a limb. Out psychologist is also available to support our team of volunteer prosthetists working in high-risk environments (often exposed to traumatic, high-stress situations themselves).
Interested in an alternative?
Helping Hands sounds great but it’s not exactly what you’re looking for? Why not consider two other options below:
(1) The Water Works Program
This activity is a truly unique opportunity for organisations to get involved with a worthwhile cause at the same time as participating in a fantastic team-building and learning opportunity.
In a nutshell, this program enables ordinary people across the world to get involved in building and donating a water filtration system that will effectively increase the health and well-being of an entire community.

(2) Our Book: The Inspired Workplace
We have just published our first book. It’s titled “The Inspired Workplace: Organisational wisdom from the most unlikely of sources” and is essentially a brand new take on leadership and workplace culture that has been inspired by Matt’s travels as part of both Helping Hands and Water Works projects.
The most inspiring stories have always involved fundamental struggles that we can all relate to.…Struggles against genuine adversity such as injustice, hunger, thirst and poverty. The Inspired Workplace is a leadership and cultural development book unlike any other. It has been predicated on the assumption that the most inspiring people in the world are not those of us lucky enough to receive a private school education, but those people that have had to struggle against and overcome the most tragic of circumstances. This book will help reinvigorate your practice as a leader. It will remind you of what is truly important in life and enable you to shape a truly inspired workplace.
