Handy Person Service

If you are aged 65 or over or living with a disability, you are eligible for our Handyperson service.

Your local Handyperson Service is a partnership between Pentland Housing Association and The Highland Council.

Together, we are here to help you with minor repairs around the home which you may find difficult if you are an older resident or have a disability.

Our Handyperson Service has been vetted by Disclosure Scotland and staff will be able to show you their identification badge when they knock on your door.

How much will it cost?

Our Handyperson is fully equipped with tools and will be ready to undertake your repair. We will only charge you for the materials the Handyperson uses to complete the agreed work. We will make no charge for the Handyperson's time or travel expenses.
