This is a scheme to provide a trustworthy service via locally based Home Improvement Agencies
to help vulnerable people to maintain their independence and live comfortably and safely in their own homes.
A National organisation, their web address is The service operates through a network of Handypersons who will carry out odd jobs for vulnerable people -
such as those who are elderly and/or living alone - at a sensible price for a guaranteed job.
Government funding has now been withdrawn so the cost has increased somewhat - 15 per hour or thereabouts. Still a very good price for a job well done!
