The Handyperson Service, as part of Dundee City Council's Home Care Service, is committed to sustaining and supporting people in their own homes by undertaking certain maintenance tasks and a home safety assessment.
The service cannot provide an emergency response and there may be a need to prioritise the availability of the service. The service's priority is to help those who are of a pensionable age, chronically sick or disabled or on a low income.
All the Handyperson Service staff are appropriately trained in respect of Health & Safety Requirements, however the staff are not employed as a tradesperson but can offer advice about the Trusted Trader Scheme organised by EHTS.
The type of tasks the Handyperson Service can undertake include:
- changing light bulbs
- installing smoke alarms and replacing batteries
- taking down and putting up curtains
- undertaking safety checks of household electrical items, e.g. kettles
- moving furniture within a room
- undertaking a home safety assessment
A request for this service can be made to the Handyperson Team, who can provide more information on this service and advise you of any costs that may be involved:
