Handyperson Service

Purpose

To assist older, disabled and vulnerable people to live independently in their own homes for longer in greater levels of comfort and security by undertaking small jobs that will:

• Prevent falls and accidents;

 • Prevent delayed discharges from hospital;

• Improve home security;

 • Improve energy efficiency;

• Prevent fire and detection of carbon monoxide.

To give residents support from somebody they can trust to provide a wide range of affordable small jobs where it is difficult to find “ordinary” trades people who would be prepared to undertake such work. 

Eligibility Criteria

Residents of Burnley living in their own home either in the private rented sector, social rented sector or owner occupiers who are aged 60 or over and disabled or vulnerable.

The cost of this is £10 per hour.
