Our support page gives you an idea of the types of support we are looking to provide. We are keen to know of any other areas where assistance might be needed.
We are compiling a list of tradespeople who are recommended by our core group to be competent, honest and community minded.
For a larger job members can get support from one of our volunteer retired tradespeople who can advise and monitor the quality of the work.
