WATCH: Helen Henderson is one of Hutt Valley’s local hero

HIDDEN ainpostway in Lower Hutt is a haven for parents with disabled children.

Kara Hands was set up by Helen Henderson and Kathy Garton in 1987  and provides home based respite care for families whose loved ones have high and complex special needs.

Helen has transformed her home for this, and says she is just meeting an unmet need within our community.

She was also shortlisted for the KiwiBank local hero of the year award in 2014, and although she does not know who nominated her for it, she was very humbled.

Nicole Adamson caught up with her to find out more about Kara Hands.
