Detail

The Handyperson Financial Benefits Toolkit (provided below as an MS Excel spreadsheet) uses available evidence on the aims, objectives, outcomes and benefits of handyperson services and similar interventions to help put together a case for the future funding of handyperson services locally. It uses an approach to estimating the benefits of social policy interventions that has previously been used in a number of areas and will be familiar to anyone who has used the Supporting People Financial Benefits Model.

This guidance is provided as an aid for using the Tool for developing a business case for handyperson services. Handyperson services are complex in nature, varying across local authority areas and in the nature of services interventions delivered. The examples and guidance provided are not intended to be exhaustive but are aimed at providing a checklist of key details to be included within the business case.

This guidance consists of three sections:

  1. How to use the tool to extract the data for specific handyperson services.
  2. A detailed look at the evidence used to develop the Handyperson Services Financial Benefits Tool.
  3. An overview of how to develop a business case for handyperson services.
