Southend Borough Council launch Handyperson Service

Southend Handyperson Service

We can offer help with those jobs that you find difficult to manage around the home, or to support you in being more independent.

From the leaking tap or socket that needs replacing, a curtain track that you can't manage to fit or a grab rail to support you, our Handyperson Team can help and advise the best option and service.

We can:

  • Fit locks
  • Build flat pack furniture
  • Fit stair rails and grab rails
  • Hang pictures
  • Carry out a free "home safety check" to ensure there are no hazards that could harm you, including checking your smoke alarms

We cannot do:

  • Decorating
  • Major Electrical work
  • Main drainage work
  • Gas works

At the discretion of our office, we may carry out preventative works free of charge - as part of our slips, trips and falls programme. Other Handyperson works will be charged at £17 per hour.

The Handyperson work will be checked at regular intervals to ensure the service is at the standard we would expect. We will ask you what you felt about the service we provided! We will always listen to your views on how we can improve our service.

To arrange for a Handyperson to visit, or for more information, call: 01702 215511.
