About the tender
The purpose of the service is to provide a Handyperson Service to support Older People and People with a Disability, as well as those experiencing or at risk of Domestic Abuse residing in the Wokingham Borough.
The Handyperson service will carry out preventative works to reduce the need for minor or major adaptations. The works are those which would usually be carried out by most adults around the home, but which can easily become too difficult for someone less mobile, or someone who lacks the basic skills and confidence to carry out repair work alone.
The Handyperson service is a preventative service that aims to demonstrate positive impacts on people’s health and well-being, quality of life, maintaining a sense of well-being and safety and security. The service will reduce risks to people’s independence, preventing them from having to access more expensive and less independent forms of residential accommodation/ hospitals and will help to facilitate hospital discharges. It also helps to support unpaid carers to maintain their caring role and will enable residents to have support with home adaptations, including those which enable independent living and the ability to live in a safe, warm environment.
