Home & Garden Assist




Our Home & Garden Assist venture is the arm of our organisation which deals with helping people out around the house. It is composed of a band of DIYers and gardeners who visit homes in Ilkley & district to tidy gardens, change lightbulbs and much more. Our work schedule is always busy so we are looking for new volunteers if you have any time to spare helping a neighbour.


Neighbourly Action in Wharfedale


Does your lawn need mowing? Are there old leaves in the garden which need to be swept? Or paths that need clearing? Home & Garden Assist could be the scheme to help you. If you have difficulty and need help with gardening or other maintenance jobs, we may be able to help.

We assist people who live in the locality of Ilkley, Addingham, Burley in Wharfedale or Menston. The service is aimed at older or disabled people who experience trouble with household tasks such as gardening and small home maintenance jobs. In many cases people are not able to afford a professional for such tasks - this is where the Home & Garden Assist project comes in.



  What sort of jobs can we do?


  • General handyman jobs around the home
  • Change lightbulbs
  • Mend taps and overflows
  • Tidy gardens - repotting plants, trimming lawns etc.
  • Repair fences

We will endeavour to carry out most jobs using our own in-house volunteers, but occasionally we may have to use personnel from other community groups or direct you to other organisations better equipped to help you. Please be aware that there may sometimes be a charge, for example for materials used, otherwise a donation will be appreciated. Please discuss this before work commences.
