Handyperson Service: elderly and disabled tenants

Handyperson Service

Find out how to get free help with small jobs around the house if you’re disabled or elderly

From 1 February 2022, we're no longer delivering our Handyperson Service.

This service previously provided disabled and elderly tenants with support in carrying out small jobs around the house for free or at a subsidised cost.

Repairs we can help with

If you're disabled or elderly, we're responsible for making sure your property meets health and safety standards. This means that there are some repairs that we can continue to offer you for free, like:

  • replacing or repairing a doorbell, however, you must supply the doorbell
  • easing of internal door
  • repairing a fence or gate that's become dangerous
  • replacing light bulbs for fixed ceiling lights only
  • repairing taps
  • installing a key safe
