Practical Help in the Home
Handy Person Help at Home
The Handy Person Support service is available to ensure disabled and vulnerable members of our community are able to retain their independence in their own home. Our Handy Person Operative will supply and fit a range of free physical adaptions and low-level improvements to homes including grab rails and key safes.
In addition, our Help at Home Support Worker will also ensure beneficiaries are aware of all the other support services that we provide, together with those of the council and our other partners.
The service enables those most vulnerable in our community to live more independently and safely within their homes. Importantly, it improves the individual’s health and wellbeing whilst minimising avoidable hospital admissions and helping to facilitate early discharge.

We all deserve to feel safe in our own home and that’s why our Safer Homes service is so important. Elderly and vulnerable people within our community are able to benefit from free advice and practical help from our qualified technicians. We provide crime prevention advice alongside the fitting of equipment such as door chains, spy holes and alarms.
We make sure that those who require this support are also learning how to feel safer whilst at the same time finding out what more they could do to aid themselves. All this together with more immediate practical support gives wonderful reassurance.
Our help means people can be relaxed and comfortable in their own home, something many of us take for granted. In the words of one service user, with the help of Safer Homes, they were able to ‘breathe again’.
Because we provide this service free of charge, it means there are no barriers to people feeling safer in our community.
