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.

Dog Walking

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.

Home Visitors/Shopping

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.

Phone Support

Volunteers who provide this service have a disability and ring clients on a fortnightly basis for a friendly chat and informal support.
