An Interview with: Tree's Home Help, Rutland

30 March 2018
Tree Gillions (31) from Oakham owns a home help company, Tree's Home Help which offers services to the vulnerable, lonely and elderly around Rutland and surrounding villages. Tree's aim is to help their clients maintain their independence with Tree's help and care.

But Tree isn't just a carer who fell in love with the work she does, Tree has a disability herself and is proud of being 'the only disabled home support carer in Rutland' - and possibly in the whole of the UK! I was extremely inspired by Tree's story and her passion for the job she says she 'was meant to do' and I'm so pleased I was lucky enough to meet such an incredible person who helps others despite having a disability herself.

I met with Tree a number of times to find out more about the services she offers such as; home support, cleaning, companionship, chaperone, personal care, errands and shopping, liaising with agencies and social services, assistance with paperwork and finances and much, much more!
See the full list of services on Tree's Home Help website here!

I asked Tree a few questions about her business and what it means to own a business in Rutland helping Rutland residents. Find out what we asked Tree and what she had to say about her wonderful business which helps assist those in need...

As the Snow hits Rutland!

2 March 2018

As the snow falls and the freezing temperatures plummet around Rutland, it's been go-go-go at Rutland Blog HQ (my office at home) this week. We've been attempting the travel to Corby from Uppingham each day for my partners commute to his job in London. If you follow the blogs Facebook Page (click here) you'll know all about this! I cannot explain how positive the response has been from all our loyal readers and the increase of engagement on my social channels.

I've had nearing 40,000 views on one video, over 400+ new Facebook followers and a number of thankful emails from readers who've been enjoying my updates and dedication to informing the residents around Rutland and I'm very thankful for all your support.

Today, my partner and I jumped in our Defender and headed around Rutland to take photographs around the county after the increased winds overnight... Take a look below and see the captions for where we headed to around the county and what we saw! 

Also, find some of our amazing readers photographs below that were sent in by you!

I just want to take this moment to thank you all for your support and want to encourage you to stay safe and only travel if you need to around Rutland. If you have any photographs, videos, information etc that you think we should hear about please message us on Facebook or email:

Thank you!
