Handyperson and minor adaptations service

Find out what the handyperson and minor adaptations service could help you with.

What we can do

This service helps older, disabled and vulnerable people with small jobs and minor adaptations around the home.

For example, we can:

  • change light bulbs
  • put up shelves/erect flat pack furniture
  • secure loose carpets or rugs around the home  - but not fit carpet
  • fit replacement door/window locks
  • supply and fit key safes
  • fit plastic and metal grab rails
  • fit mop stick handrails
  • fit external handrails

These are only a few examples of how we can help. No matter the work you need, always feel free to ask. If we cannot help, we may be able to suggest someone who can.

What we can't do

Unfortunately, we are unable to do:

  • any gas works
  • any electrical work
  • any jobs at height

For small repairs work a charge of £15 per hour, including VAT, is made, plus the cost of any materials purchased by the handyperson on your behalf. The majority of minor adaptations will be provided and installed free of charge.
