For many older or disabled people who want to continue to be independent, routine chores can present a major challenge – like changing a bed or doing the shopping.
Our Handy Housekeepers are the answer!
This friendly and reliable service is designed to enable you or your loved ones to carry on living successfully and happily at home.
We not only provide that little bit of help around the house to keep things clean and tidy, we also offer regular company so you can have peace of mind and feel secure.
To ensure continuity of service, we’ll assign a Housekeeper who’ll get to know you and understand your particular needs. They can help with:
- Dusting and polishing furniture
- Cleaning baths, sinks and toilets
- Washing floors
- Changing beds
- Emptying rubbish bins
- Collecting weekly shopping from the local supermarket
- Collecting prescriptions
- Supporting outdoor activities
- Sitting and companionship
To find out more or to sign up for this service, call our friendly team today on 0115 969 9060, 9am – 4pm. Or fill out our contact form
We’re also keen to hear from you if you’re interested in becoming a Handy Housekeeper.

“It’s such a load off my mind to have my Handy Housekeeper come and clean and tidy for me. She also helps me with shopping and my laundry. Life is so much easier now.”
What does it cost?
As a charity, we need to make a charge for some of our services to help us cover the cost of running them as they don’t receive any funding.
For Handy Housekeepers, we charge an hourly rate of £16.
We strive to offer high-quality services at affordable prices. If you’re worried about payment, we may able to help you find out if you can claim benefits or allowances to cover the cost of this and other services you might need.
We're passionate believers in the power of volunteering. It changes lives for the better. That's why we encourage and support people to get involved.
