Handyperson's Service

21 Jun 2023


Our FREE Handyperson Service is provided by Glasgow Care & Repair on Linthouse Housing Association's behalf.

The service is available to Linthouse tenants where all members of the household are aged 65 & over OR have a disability or long term medical condition. 

The Handyperson's Service provides practical assistance by carrying out small repairs and tasks around the home.  

The labour is FREE OF CHARGE but payment is required for any materials required. 

Materials could be things like a light bulb, shelf, wireless doorbell, towel rail or curtain pole - the Handyperson can purchase these items for you or you may wish to provide them yourself. 

There are also many jobs you may require which do not require materials, such as moving furniture from one room to another or moving large items outside for uplift (uplift is the responsibility of the tenant), turning heavy mattresses, changing curtains, replacing a washer, light shades, adjusting roller blinds, plane internal doors after new carpets fitted or re-seal around the bath. 

Some small jobs around the garden may be carried out such as repairing locks on huts, gates, hanging flower baskets or supplying and fitting an external grab rail (not bannisters).

Glasgow Care & Repair also provide signposting to Linthouse tenants to local contractors for jobs such as:  connecting washing machines, painting and decorating or building flat pack furniture.

Linthouse tenants can contact Glasgow Care & Repair direct on:  0141 433 2749, email: or click on the link below to access an online referral form:
