This report highlights the role of Handyperson Services in keeping people safe and healthy in their own homes. It looks at some of the main improvements services can carry out, which can include repairs, home safety checks and home adaptations. It also provides examples of services that provide added value. These include: Middlesbrough Staying Put, County Durham Handyperson Service and Manchester Care & Repair. Figures from a sample survey completed by 78 local authorities in England show that over half of local authorities either provide or commission handyperson services, with 45 percent providing services that aid timely discharge from hospital. The report concludes that the inclusion of Disabled Facilities Grant in the Better Care Fund provides a mechanism to improve the commissioning and targeting of Handyperson Services.
