Age UK Nottingham & Nottinghamshire - Advice & Information Service

The Age UK Notts Information & Advice service operates throughout the City and County of Nottingham. Our information and advice service is independent, impartial, free and confidential.

We typically help local people in later life claim in excess of £2 million in benefit entitlements each year. We can help with benefit entitlements, such as:

  • Pension Credit.
  • Rent/Council Tax rebates.
  • Attendance Allowance.
  • Disability Living Allowance.
  • Carer’s Allowance.
  • Social Fund payments
  • Bereavement benefits.

We can also help with issues such as:

  • Gas and electricity bills.
  • Aids and adaptations.
  • Care at home.
  • Residential care.
  • Other local services and support.

Drop-in sessions

We hold drop-in advice surgeries every Monday and Thursday morning (10am to 12 noon) at Bradbury House, our Nottingham base. No appointment is necessary.

Home visiting service

We can offer home visits to disabled or housebound older people in need of help, or advice related to welfare benefit claims. Where appropriate, we will contact local advice-giving services on your behalf.

Volunteering

The success of the Information and Advice Service depends on the dedicated support of a team of trained volunteers. Contact us, without obligation, if you are interested in joining us.

Money Advice

We could all do with a bit of help sorting out our finances but where do we start?

Information services

We have a wide range of free Age UK information guides and factsheets, including:

  • Managing your money
  • Care homes
  • Health Services
  • Care at home

Contact us for a full list.

We also hold information about useful local projects and services available from the statutory and voluntary/charitable sectors.

What we offer you

  • We strive to offer you information that is accurate and up to date.
  • We can explain the choices you have.
  • We will help you decide what to do, but not force our opinions on you.
  • We may be able to take action on your behalf, if you want us to.
  • If we cannot help you, we may know of others who can.

How we work

  • We will not charge you for our service.
  • You can talk to us in private.
  • We will not make judgements about your life and what you want to do.
  • We will not be influenced by any interests other than yours.

Notts50Plus Projects - Handy Person Adaptation Service (HPAS) - Ashfield

The County Council, in partnership with both health authorities, all borough and district councils in Nottinghamshire, Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue and Nottinghamshire Police has set up a Handy Person Adapatation Service (HPAS). HPAS will provide that little bit of help to older and vulnerable people living across Nottinghamshire. The type of jobs range from fitting hand rails and half steps, to changing light bulbs, fitting door locks and putting up shelves. Often very small jobs such as fixing loose carpets or installing a hand rail can prevent a fall and avoid a lot of unncessary distress to the individual.

Self employed traders on the Trading Standards approved traders register Buy with Confidence will contact you to arrange to complete the work you need. The job will be completed within five working days from when you ask for the service.

If the work needs to be completed to enable you to be discharged from hospital, then the job will be completed within 2 working days.

Who can apply to use these services?
Anyone who is disabled or over 60.

Minor adaptations cannot currently be fitted to ouses that are rented from the council or a housing association, but handy persons jobs are available to everyone.

How much will I have to pay?
Adaptation jobs
The fitting of grab rails, stair rails, half steps and exterior hand rails are called adaptation jobs.

You can have up to £250 worth of adaptations supplied and fitted in a single job. This will cost you £15.

Handy person jobs
The other type of jobs are called handy person jobs. These are small jobs and include things like changing light bulbs, putting up shelves or fixing loose carpets. The cost of a handy person job is £15 plus any materials used. The trader will be able to buy these on your behalf at the beginning of the job if you are unable to buy them yourself.

These prices are subject to change, so please check with the scheme co-ordinators when requesting a job to confirm the price.

Is there a limit to what I can have done?
Yes there are a few restrictions as follows:

  • Requests for adapations exceeding £250 worth of materials will be referred onto the Occupational Therapy team for a full assessment
  • The service does not extend to gardening, decorating, or any job requests that requires a specialist trader or is likely to exceed four hours of work.
  • HPAS can only be used once in any three month period unless you need extra adaptations.
  • All jobs must either reduce the risk of a fall or help you remain living independently in your home.

What can I expect from the traders?

  • High quality workmanship
  • Majority of jobs completed within five working days of the trader making an appointment
  • Clean, tidy and courteous traders

To apply for the handy person and adaptation service call the scheme co-ordinators or email.
