This service enables older people to carry on living independently, feeling safe in their own home.

We can carry out small jobs around the home

Covid-19 update


Throughout the coronavirus pandemic the Handyperson Service has continued to support older people in the county by carrying out essential work in the home which helps keep people safe when they leave hospital.

We have been fitting key safes which ensure that care staff can provide essential support at home and we have also been fitting grab rails which help to prevent falls.  As the restrictions were lifted, we have extended the range of work we can carry out.  We continue to fit key safes and to carry out work that helps older people live independently.  Please call us to find out how we can help.
