Handy DIY Help

Handy DIY Help specialise in small scale jobs to improve safety, security and comfort. Helping customers feel safe in their own homes. Reducing the risk of trips and falls lets our customers maintain their independence for longer. If a customer requires electrical changes in a bathroom or toilet the government requires that those changes are carried out by a ‘competent person’. We are registered with the government approved NICEIC competent person scheme.

About Handy DIY Help

Previously I worked as a heating, ventilation and refrigeration engineer for supermarkets. I became a qualified electrician in 2014 while working in the industry and learning the trade.

With a growing family of three kids, two dogs and a cat I relocated further north to be closer to my roots of Sunderland and my family here in Darlington.

Elderly people can often find themselves at a loss when it comes to simple tasks like changing a light bulb. I noticed this with my parents and decided to start up Handy DIY Help to meet this need with other residents of Darlington and the north.
