Handy Person⁺ Service

How do we help?

Handyperson+ Statement

We are very sorry to say that due to the current Coronavirus outbreak we have taken the decision to suspend our Handyperson+ visits to people in their own homes. We will resume the service as soon as the risk of infection has passed. In the meantime, the Handyperson+ service will be continuing to work with the Hospital Discharge Liaison Team at Southampton General Hospital helping to free up hospital beds.

Our HP+ Service is a unique, community-based service provided by SSJ, funded by Southampton City Council.

The service is available to help:

  • People over 70
  • Adults with disabilities
  • Vulnerable families with children under 5

Two hours labour and materials up to the value of £30 are free to people in receipt of:

  • ESA or Income Support
  • Guaranteed Pension Credit
  • Council Tax Benefit
  • Housing Benefit
  • Attendance Allowance
  • Disability Living Allowance/Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

If you are not in receipt of benefits you may still be able to benefit from the service, for a small fee.
