Home Handy Person and Gardening Service
Volunteers provide basic home maintenance such as:
- Fixing tap washers
- Touch up painting
- Fixing shelves
- Fixing door hinges
- Basic gardening – pruning, planting and weeding
*We do not provide lawn mowing services.
The service is free, but clients must provide the parts or gardening supplies needed to complete the job.
Volunteers are matched up with a client as close as possible to their home. Volunteers walk the client’s dog as often as they have time.
Volunteers visit with clients, generally on a fortnightly basis. The main role of the Volunteer is to provide social support. Some of the activities that the Volunteer may do during a visit include chatting, shopping or going out for a meal or coffee.
Volunteers who provide this service have a disability and ring clients on a fortnightly basis for a friendly chat and informal support.
