About our handyperson service

The aim of our handyperson service is to enable older people in Buckinghamshire to remain in control of their home and their independence. 
This service is here for when you need a shelf or curtain rail putting up, a dripping tap fixed, a toilet seat replacing or some flat-pack furniture putting together.
We can help you feel safer in your home by installing key safes, door chains and window locks - and grab rails around the home so you can move around more confidently.

We also help in the garden – with basic tasks like mowing the lawn, weeding the flower beds and clipping the hedges.
