Cleveland Fire Support Network – A Service To Help Around The Home
Are you, or do you know someone, who would benefit from a little extra help with jobs around the home and garden?
It’s important our community is safe and we are all able to live in a home free of danger. Unfortunately for some this is not possible, as a result of being unable to complete essential DIY jobs, and becoming a target of cowboy tradesmen.
If you are EITHER:
✅ Over 60 years of age
✅ Registered with a disability
The Cleveland Fire Support Network Handyperson Scheme would like to make your life easier and safer by helping with the small practical jobs and gardening, including:
🏠 Indoor 🏠
🖼️ Essentials – curtain rails, shelving, picture hanging, plug and light bulbs replacement, moving furniture within the property
🚭 Safety measures – fitting smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors and grab rails
🔒 Home security – door and window locks, door chains and door viewers
💡 Energy efficiency checks – installing draught excluders, radiator heat reflectors and energy efficient lightbulbs
🏡 Gardening 🏡
🔨 Repairs to gates, fencing and pathways reducing the risk of tripping hazards
🛡️ Security lighting installation
🌲Hedge trimming, lawn mowing
There will be a cost of £18 per hour to cover our costs as the scheme is not funded, but ran and managed by us to address the need in the community! Bookings are limited to 1 hour slots each time so we can support as many people as possible.
To find out more about the service please call 01642 288009
We would also love to hear from you, if you have any spare time and would be interested in becoming a handyperson for your community!
