Age UK Stockport provides a variety of practical support services.
The Handy Help service offers minor repairs which are usually too small for contractors or commercial businesses to undertake for example;
- Property health check - Age UK Stockport workers can carry out a property check to spot any issues or potential issues before they become major problems, and can provide advice on where to go for help
- Gardening - covering a range of short term gardening support
- Assistance - where jobs are beyond the scope or skills of the Handy Help team, they can provide information about local tradesmen based on a great deal of local knowledge and experience
