RSVP Handyperson Service

We’ve been notified of this great initiative.


A volunteer-led project set up to help older people in Stirling and Clackmannanshire with DIY jobs in their homes the RSVP Handyperson Service has recorded its busiest year since it was set up over a decade ago.

 

The RSVP Handyperson Service has seen a 30% increase in the number of requests for help this year, with volunteers completing more than 400 jobs in 2016. The volunteers assist older people with everyday tasks such as rewiring plugs, fitting batteries in smoke alarms, assembling flat pack furniture and putting up shelves.  


The free service, which is funded through the Big Lottery, helps older people to live independently in their own homes. To request assistance, older people simply call the RSVP office on 01259 928 088 and leave their name, address, contact details and a description of the job they need help with.


If you know of someone who would benefit from the service or who would be interested in being a volunteer with the project contact:
