Local Handy Help Service Clinches Top National Award

Manchester Care & Repair has recently been awarded a top national prize for ‘Excellence in providing handyperson services’.

This prestigious award, made by ‘Foundations’ – the Government-appointed national coordinating body for Home Improvement Agencies – has been conferred for demonstrating an understanding of the value of a handyperson scheme for older people and evidence of good practice.

Manchester Care & Repair is an independent charitable organisation. It provides a Handy Help service to undertake small jobs and repairs around the home. This service is free (although you pay for materials) and available to anybody living in Manchester who is aged 60 or above, regardless of income or whether they rent or own their property. If you would like to know more about the service please contact 0161 872 5500 or visit their website at www.careandrepair-manchester.org.uk.

If you are involved in a community group and would like a representative of Manchester Care & Repair to visit your group to tell you more about the Handy Help service and how Manchester Care & Repair may help, please contact Caroline Raw on 0161 874 1686.
