A service providing simple odd jobs to people aged 65+ with a long term health condition and their carers.

How it Works

You can be referred into our scheme from another Age UK Wirral Service or through self-referral by getting in touch directly on the email provided on the back of this Leaflet. You will then be contacted either by phone or in person to get an idea of the job/s to be done. We will then conduct a home visit to assess the job/s and you will then be booked in with a time and date for the work/s to be carried out by our friendly Handyperson Steve.

What We Can Do

Our service aims to carry out a variety of small odd jobs that will help people in our community to be able to be comfortable and safe in their home and living environments and enable them to live their life to the full!

Some of the odd jobs that we provide are…

  • Keysafe fittings
  • Handrail fittings
  • Curtain pole fitting
  • Changing lightbulbs
  • Moving of lightweight furniture
  • Changing batteries
  • Unblocking sinks/u-bends
Please note that the Handyperson Service is for small odd jobs only. We do not undertake any major works e.g. electrics, plumbing, cleaning or anything at height.
