A scheme launched by South Norfolk Council designed to give older and vulnerable people help with small repairs in their homes has proved to be so popular that it has expanded to accommodate for all residents.

The Handyperson Scheme tackles jobs such as fitting low energy bulbs and cleaning empty gutters, and other small tasks.

If you are on tested benefits and either registered disabled or suffering from long-term ill-health, you are entitled to two hours of labour and the installation of grab rails, smoke alarms, and more for free.

The service costs £20 per hour plus the cost of any additional materials.
