Case study - Jobs at home

Jobs at Home

Orbit Heart of England has gone into partnership with Jobs at Home to provide a unique handyperson service for people living in the Midlands.

Jobs at Home, a social enterprise focusing on low cost and innovative ways of providing sustainable training and jobs for the community, has worked with Orbit to establish the handyperson service which is available to anyone living in Coventry, Bedworth and Nuneaton.

The service is provided at an affordable rate, agreed before any works are started. Services offered include window and door repairs, plaster work and decorating, plumbing, carpentry, gardening, key fitting and lock changes, light bulb fitting, blind fitting, curtain pole installation as well as minor aids and adaptations including the installation of grab rails, stair rails and shower rails.

Supported by Orbit’s Community Investment fund, the new service is unique in that it provides opportunities for Orbit customers to train to become qualified operatives with Jobs at Home. The new trainees will work alongside trained operatives whilst studying towards their multi operative skills qualifications.
