Age UK Handyperson Service (Southwark)

Age UK Handyperson Service (Southwark) logo

We can provide a handyperson to complete light repair jobs around the home, please contact us to arrange a booking.

Our Handyperson service is free for people over the age of 50 living in the Borough of Southwark. Our friendly staff have experience in working with older people and carry out a range of repair jobs around the home to help them remain safe and independent. Common jobs include fixing door handles and changing light bulbs, fitting units and nailing in pictures. We also help with garden clearance. As our aim is to increase the safety of older people in the Borough, we also fit smoke alarms and encourage our clients to request a home fire safety check.

If the client needs work done which requires specific materials, we ask that they provide these themselves. Please note that some larger jobs will need an initial visit to assess the level of work needed before it is commenced.

We have consistently received excellent feedback from older people in the Borough who have benefited from the service.
