Handyperson service, Funding for repairs and adaptations

What does it do?

Home improvement and adaptations
The Herefordshire Handyperson Scheme is provided by Herefordshire Council’s You at Home service. All visiting Handyperson staff have been police checked and carry identity cards. Our experienced home improvement team can help you with support and guidance for all home improvements and adaptations. We also sometimes provide financial assistance for small scale emergency repairs.

Our handyperson team may be able to help with small adaptations like ramps, half steps, handrails, home safety and security work, and a wide range of small repairs to help you remain independent or to ensure you can return home from hospital.

In some cases a small fee will be charged for work undertaken.
