How we help

Whether you are looking for advice for yourself, a family member or friend, Age UK Horsham District is happy to help with enquiries for people who are over 50. Our local, trusted Help at Home Scheme now includes gardening and handyperson help with those little jobs around your home and garden.

Our register of police checked, referenced and friendly gardeners, handypersons and home helps are waiting to help you stay independent and safe."Our Home Help personnel will work in a way that lets you continue to live your life the way you want." Our Home Helps, gardeners and handypersons are individually selected by Age UK Horsham District; we do not use agency staff. Each carries a photo identity card, has been police checked and is fully insured.

Our volunteer home visiting service provides support and companionship to older people who are perhaps housebound or socially isolated in the community. This service has been available throughout Horsham District for many years and some of our volunteers have been visiting clients for much of that time.

Our free Home from Hospital service is available for vulnerable adults who do not have a carer upon discharge. In addition to this a Village Agent is employed by Age UK Horsham District to provide a trusted and well-known friendly face at the heart of the rural community; the Village Agent makes a positive impact by helping people to gain access to services and information.
