HANDYPERSON SERVICE

Ian 007 Cold Alarm (5) Small Repairs 009
 
This service is intended to help with the minor but no less important tasks around your home.  There is no charge for labour or travel costs and you only have to pay the cost of materials, if supplied by us.
 
This service is provided by our existing staff throughout Renfrewshire and East Renfrewshire.  In addition we have a seperate dedicated Handyperson Service throughout Renfrewshire.  This is funded by Renfrewshire Council through the Change Fund – a Scottish Government initiative to help older people live more independently at home or in a homely setting for longer.
 
YOU CAN USE THIS SERVICE IF YOU ARE:-
  • Aged 60 or over
  • Disabled or the parent or guardian of a disabled person
  • Living in Renfrewshire or East Renfrewshire
 
Please note if you have someone living with you aged 17 or older who is able to do the work, you will not be able to use the service.
We do not carry out works which are the responsibility of your landlord.
