Highland handyperson service


Our handyperson service is for people aged 65 or over who have difficulty carrying out small jobs around the home, and for people of any age with a disability.

Each handyperson is fully equipped with tools and will be ready to undertake your repair. They will charge you for the materials the handyperson uses to complete the agreed work. Please check with the organisation as there may be a charge for the handyperson’s time or travel expenses.

Our handyperson teams have all been vetted by Disclosure Scotland (external link) and will be able to show you their identification badge when they knock on your door.

HIGHLAND HOUSING
 

The Highland Housing Register

The Highland Housing Register is a single housing list shared between us and the registered social landlords.

Anyone looking for social rented housing in Highland can apply from any of the partner social landlords by completing a single shared application form.

We monitor applications and housing allocations annually. Read the latest annual monitoring report.

A single register provides a more accurate estimate of housing need than a number of different registers. It can also help inform strategic planning within the Highland housing market area making sure that housing need and demand is assessed for investment purposes.

Further information about common housing registers is available from the Scottish Housing Best Value Network (external link).

HOUSES FOR HEROES

 

SVGCA is a private Scottish charitable landlord and houses only disabled ex-Service, Police, Fire and Merchant Marine. The qualifying permanent disability need not have been incurred in service and includes chronic illness. SVGCA works closely with the Tri-Service Personnel Recovery Centre and priority is set against those in greatest need, facing potential homelessness.

The estate, located on 74 sites throughout Scotland, consists of nearly 700 houses currently of varying sizes and types, of which the majority are two and three bedroomed houses, some on two floors.

Houses are rented for life, do not come up often and consequently, there is a long waiting list.

If you would like to be considered for a space on the waiting list please click here for an application form. Alternatively you are welcome to call the SVGCA Housing Manager on 0131 285 3292.
