LEAP Handyperson and Eco-shop – practical help to get you started

We’ve launched two new LEAP Services following your feedback from our recent extensive community consultation, for more practical help to make your home more comfortable and energy efficient:

LEAP Handyperson

Had a free Home Energy Check, Thermal Image or Draught Test and wondering where to start? Short on time or DIY skills? We’ve employed the services of two reputable local tradesmen with experience of draught proofing, energy saving and all those minor repair jobs around the house. Really no job is too small. Depending on your circumstances we may be able to provide this service for FREE. Please contact: ingrid@myleapproject.org, or Tel: 01505 612 034.

LEAP Eco Shop

If you’re a DIY enthusiast and ready to get going please do shop local and drop in to your local LEAP shop to pick up any essential supplies such as draughtproofing strips, caulk, chimney balloons, letterbox draught excluders, etc. We stock a wide range but if anything you need is unavailable we’ll order it in for you. All proceeds from the LEAP shop go back into providing more free local services for local people. Please also see our helpful ‘how to’ videos and tips: LEAP DIY Draughtproofing

If we can be of any further assistance please do let us know, and we’d love to hear how you’ve got on!
