We all want to remain independent for as long as possible - Age Cymru's  HandyVan service can help you do this. 

We can help with small household repairs, minor adaptations and odd jobs that will improve your quality of life.

Age Cymru's HandyVan service will give you peace of mind by making your home more safe and secure.

What Age Cymru's HandyVan service can do:

  • safety measures – carbon monoxide detectors, grab rails and stair banisters. We also provide fall prevention evaluations.
  • home security – door and window locks, door chains and door viewers;
  • energy efficiency checks – installing draught excluders, radiator heat reflectors and energy efficient light-bulbs;
  • small repairs – putting up curtain rails, shelves and pictures, tacking down loose carpets, securing loose cupboard doors and repairing internal doors;
  • and much more – please give us a call with your enquiry.

Please note that all our services are chargeable.  Please visit our costs page for our prices or give us a call on 029 2043 1555 to get a quote.  Here you will also find our fixed prices for standard jobs and free work.


The Age Cymru HandyVan service is specially tailored for the over 50s, but the service is open to all who live in Cardiff or the Vale of Glamorgan.

If you don’t live in these areas we have local partners across Wales that may offer the service you’re looking for and there are other agencies too.
