Victory has formed a partnership with Age UK North Norfolk to deliver a Handyperson, Gardening and Decorating Scheme.
Both organisations were providing this service in the north of Norfolk so we decided it made perfect sense for us to join forces. The partnership, which combines the best parts from both schemes, has made it possible to extend the service to a wider group of people.
The scheme covers all sorts of small jobs that you may not want to tackle yourself, from putting up a shelf or fitting a door chain, to decorating a room. Gardening jobs such as weeding, pruning and grass cutting are also included in the scheme, and Age UK can arrange free Home Fire Risk Assessments and smoke alarm Fitting if you require.
The service is available for anyone over the age of 50 (or younger if you have a disability), and you do not need to be receiving benefits to qualify. All jobs have a set rate of £9 per hour, plus the cost of any materials not supplied by you.
To find out if you are eligible to use the service, contact Age UK North Norfolk on 01263 823126
