AHS Ltd is very proud to have been part of the steering group that developed the Sutherland and Ross-Shire Handy Person Services.
This service, run by ILM Highland, was initially established in Sutherland after our application for Wider Role Funding for the project and has recently been extended to Ross and Cromarty. Communities Scotland has provided a grant of £107,868 over three years towards the running costs.
The Handy Person Scheme is available to people over 60 or with a disability who live in either Sutherland or Ross-Shire. The handy person can do a variety of odd jobs and small repairs around the home and can also make minor adaptations for you, such as fitting grab rails. Labour and travel costs are covered by the scheme and the householder is asked to pay for or provide materials.
Each handy person is vetted through disclosure Scotland and carries personal identification. They will have all the equipment and experience to carry out the job for you.
