Handy Person Scheme

The service supports the local community - whether they are older or disabled - to live safely and independently at home.

Mole Valley District Council (MVDC) is working in partnership with Millbrook Healthcare, (a not for profit social enterprise based in Brockham), to provide an enhanced professional handy person scheme in Mole Valley.

Working in partnership, MVDC's aim is to promote and assist independent living at home by carrying out adaptations and repairs. Those who feel vulnerable, have a disability or are advancing in age generally prefer to remain living independently in their own home for as long as possible. This can prove difficult with obstacles such as stairs, steps, getting in and out of the bath and facing day to day home maintenance issues.

Millbrook HealthCare's trusted team of technicians have years of experience advising and providing practical solutions to everyday difficulties. The low cost service is available for minor work that you may no longer feel confident to do around your home.

Typical jobs covered by the service

  • banister, grab and hand rails and small ramps and half steps
  • lever taps
  • door entry systems, door chains and door spy holes
  • replacing curtain tracks and hanging curtains
  • replacing light bulbs, including fitting energy efficient bulbs

All the technicians are multi-skilled and DSB checked and can carry out most minor carpentry, plumbing and electrical work. The council can provide security and energy efficiency measures too.

The aim is to keep fees low and prices start at £29.50 per hour but vary depending on the job (please see Schedule of Rates for more detailed pricing).

Millbrook Healthcare will endeavour to inform you of the cost before any work is undertaken.
