Handyperson Scheme

The Handyperson Scheme was created to help our elders with minor repairs around their homes. We have a list of qualified tradesmen who are CRB checked who will undertake the larger jobs at a reduced price to service users.


The Handyperson Scheme was set up in response to demands from the organisation's service users.

With the current emphasis on people remaining in the home it is essential that our elders remain in a
warm safe and secure environment.
