Handyperson service

The Handyperson Service can visit your home to carry out small jobs you find difficult, or cannot get anyone else to help you with.

Anyone who is over 60 or disabled who lives in their own home or rented property can access the service.

What work can the handyperson do?

The handyperson can do lots of small jobs. Examples include:

  • fixing a tap washer;
  • putting up a shelf or cupboard;
  • fitting a door bell or key safe;
  • re-laying flags;
  • putting up a curtain rail;
  • putting up or taking down curtains;
  • fitting door and window locks; and
  • fitting an extra handrail on the stairs.

If you have a query about any jobs you need doing, contact us and we will advise if it is something we can do.

We can change plugs and fuses, but cannot carry out other electrical or gas work (see: Home repairs) and we do not do gardening or decorating. The type of work is limited to small DIY jobs taking no more than half a day to carry out. Assistance is available for longer and more complex jobs.

What will it cost?

You will have to pay the cost of all materials and a labour charge.

Please contact the service on 01422 392422 to discuss.
