Cambridgeshire County Council has sent through the following information:
Handyperson Services complete ‘odd jobs’ around the home, mainly for people aged 60 plus.
Cambridgeshire County Council, Cambridge City Council, district councils in East Cambridgeshire, Fenland, Huntingdonshire and South Cambridgeshire, and Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), are working together to develop a countywide Handyperson Service. To help develop this service a survey has been produced for people over 60 or with a disability, carers, professionals and organisations and groups to say what sort of handyperson service they would like to be provided. The survey is now ‘open’ and closing date for responses is 5.00pm on Monday 23rd June 2014.
Please be aware of this opportunity for people in your community to have their say about what they would like a handyperson service to provide. The survey can be found at:
