© Keighley & District Volunteer Centre
A friendly and reliable Handy Person service for older people in
the Keighley district.
Do you need help with minor jobs or repairs around your home?
If the answer is 'yes' and you are an older person (over 65) living within in the Keighley District, why not take advantage of our Helping Hands handy-persons scheme?
The scheme is a charitable project run by Keighley & District Volunteer Centre. It provides clients with a friendly and reliable way of getting those little DIY jobs done at a very low cost.
Your wellbeing is our concern, that's why we provide advice on safety issues.
Staying safe plays a big part in keeping independent in your own home. That's why we also provide friendly advice and information to help minimise accidents in the home. We can also signpost you to other services that may be of benefit to you.
When a helping hand isn't quite enough...
Some jobs are of course too big for the Helping Hands scheme to undertake. In these instances we will support you to select a competent trader from the Keighley 'Approved Traders' Register.
