We are the national body for Home Improvement Agency and Handypersons Services providing support to over 200 home improvement and handyperson service providers in England, covering over 80% of local authorities.

Our core objectives are to:

What is a handyperson service?

Services typically cover:

  • Small building repairs;
  • Minor adaptations (such as installation of grab rails or temporary ramps);
  • "Odd" jobs (for example, putting up curtain rails and shelves, moving furniture);
  • General home safety checks with remedial action (for example safety checking or repairing/replacing appliances);
  • Falls/accident prevention checks with remedial action (for example, securing loose carpets or putting up grab rails);
  • Security checks with remedial action (for example, checking and replacing window and door locks);
  • Energy efficiency (for example installing low energy light bulbs, draft proofing);
  • Signposting clients to other services.
