Handyperson service

Do you want a bit of extra help with odd jobs around your home? From building flat pack furniture to putting up shelves, our friendly and reliable handyperson team can help.


We can:

  • put up shelves or curtain rails
  • do minor carpentry
  • do minor plumbing like fixing a leaking tap
  • fit locks and bolts
  • hang pictures
  • fit grab and stair rails
  • fit smoke detectors
  • build flat pack furniture
  • ...and many other jobs.

All our handypeople have enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks. We are affiliated to TrustMark.

How much does it cost?

The service costs from £10 to £18 per hour. We can offer the discounted rate to some customers, including older and disabled people.

We will ask you a few questions - for example, about any benefits you get - to see if you can get a discounted rate. If we think you might be able to get grants to pay for some of the cost, we will tell you and explain how to apply for them.
