Do you need help with DIY, repairs, and maintenance around the house? We have handypersons to help you with them.

Age UK Dacorum work in partnership with Hertfordshire County Council, local councils, voluntary organisations, Hertfordshire Police and Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue to safeguard our clients and ensure that our handypersons are friendly and trusted tradespeople.

Our handyperson scheme provides help to older people, their carers and people with disabilities within Dacorum by carrying out small repairs and DIY jobs around the home at reasonable rates.

"I was very happy with Chris's work for me. He did a great job and was friendly, helpful, and professional.

When I have found the curtain tie backs and pictures that I need help putting up I will be asking again for an appointment!

Age UK Dacorum are offering a wonderful service here.”
