Handyperson service

For many older people, simple jobs such as changing a lightbulb, configuring a remote control or DIY can become a barrier to them feeling safe living at home.

That is where our handyperson services can make a difference.

We have a team of handyperson volunteers in all of our locations who have gone through our training and can support older people in their homes by carrying out a range of tasks including:

  • Changing lightbulbs;

  • Changing curtains;

  • Fitting curtain rails or shelves;

  • Cleaning insides of windows;

  • Turning mattresses;

  • Replacing batteries;

  • Changing timers; and

  • Doing small DIY tasks.

We can also take on larger jobs such as fitting keysafes, building flatpack furniture or fit new smoke alarms at very competitive rates, as well as help people find trustworthy tradespersons.

If you could do with some help, know someone who might need it, or have a few hours to spare and want to become a volunteer handyperson, call us on 0141 641 5169 or email us at
