Age UK Stockport provides a range of support for general wellbeing.
For those meeting the criteria for urgent or short-term assistance under the Wellbeing at Home service (see page here) these may be provided free, otherwise charges may apply.
Handy Help & Gardening
The Handy Help service provides minor house repairs to help keep your home safe and as you would want. These are often smaller handy help type jobs that contractors or commercial businesses would not typically undertake. We also offer one-off or regular gardening services.
Where jobs are beyond the scope or skills of the Handy Help team, we can assist by providing information about local tradespeople based on a great deal of local knowledge and experience. However, please note this is NOT a referral or a recommendation and any arrangement will be between you and the tradespeople. Please read our guidance here whenever dealing with trades people.
Shopping and pension collection
Various types of other practical support are available as part of support provided under our general Support Services – Tandem Care.
