Community services for the over 50's - Handyperson preventative adaption scheme (HPAS)

HPAS will provide “that little bit of help” to older and vulnerable people in Nottinghamshire. The type of jobs range from fitting hand rails and half steps, to changing light bulbs, fitting door locks and putting up shelves. Often very small jobs such as fixing loose carpets or installing a handrail can prevent a fall and avoid unnecessary distress to an individual.

All traders are registered with the Buy with Confidence scheme detailed above.
