Eastleigh Handyperson Scheme

Providing a safe, trusted and reliable service

Eastleigh Handyperson Scheme is a safe and reliable subsidised minor repairs service available to home owners and private tenants in the Borough who are over 60 years of age or a disabled adult.  The service provides the opportunity for local people to get those little jobs done that often cause worry and stress especially if people don't know where to get help. Residents will have the peace of mind that they will get a good job at a fair price.

  • £9.60 if you are over 60 years of age and in receipt of a means tested benefit
  • £9.60 if you are a disabled adult and in receipt of a means tested benefit
  • £18 if you are over 60 years of age or disabled and not in receipt of a means tested benefit
