Lightbulbs can be supplied and will be charged at cost price. All other materials must be supplied by the client. We don't charge for most jobs but charges will apply for some jobs.Call 020 8150 0963 for more information.

We can't do jobs that require a qualified tradesman such as electrical, plumbing or central heating but Age UK London has an online directory of trusted traders that have all been checked and vetted by their staff.

We also can't help with jobs that require two people or any gardening or decorating, but we will refer on to an appropriate provider when possible. Please contact us if you have any queries about the type of help we can provide.


Please ensure that the handyperson has a safe and secure place to park during his visit. If there are parking restrictions, then please provide the handyperson with a parking voucher.
