Lifeskills provides support to clients in maintaining their tenancy or to re-settle in a new tenancy and maintain a safe and comfortable home.
Lifeskills has two distinct services:
Lifeskills Tenancy Support
a handyman service that provides practical support and assistance with small repairs and DIY tasks,
- simple joinery, such as putting up a shelf or curtain rail
- basic repair work to furniture or kitchen units
- flat pack assembly
- Small removals and disposal of redundant furniture and white goods.
- minor electrical safety jobs such as replacing plugs, fuses and light bulbs
- Securing carpets and door bars, to remove trip hazards
To help deliver the service we would welcome enquiries from potential volunteers with experience of DIY and in particular, painting skills.
As the role involves supporting vulnerable people, an enhanced disclosure will be obtained.
The ideal candidates will be capable of working on a one-to-one basis with our clients. Lifeskills will provide training, support and supervision but the volunteer will need a degree of self reliance.
Lifeskills Furniture Re-use
collects unwanted furniture and redistributes it to our referral clients. This provides an essential service to those relocating on a limited budget.
Both services operate on a referral basis across Renfrewshire and East Renfrewshire.
Lifeskills reuse good quality furniture, household goods and electrical items across Renfrewshire & East Renfrewshire.
By donating your used items you will help provide low cost furniture to the local community and keep good quality items out of landfill.
Items that can be reused locally include:
- Sofas and suites
- Beds and bed linen
- White goods
- Electrical appliances
- Soft furnishings
- Household goods
