what's on offer

Islington’s handypersons’ scheme provides help with small repairs around the home. These might be things that the council’s repair service or a landlord would not normally cover. Assistance may include: 1. Electrical works e.g. fix loose sockets, replace light fitting, fit additional phone socket. 2. Home maintenance e.g. fitting curtain rails or shelves, assembling flat pack furniture, fixing problems with doors and windows 3. Plumbing e.g. plumbing in washing machines, repair of leaks in pipe work, replacement taps and fittings 4. Security e.g. door and window locks, fitting spyholes and chains, hinge bolts This is not an exhaustive list. Please contact the team to find out if the repair you require is covered by the scheme.
