Are you an all-round handyperson – someone who can turn their hand to a spot of painting, cleaning, tidying up or gardening?

We are looking for a volunteer to come in to Rothesay Court in Longton for one or two days a week to help our Maintenance and Housekeeping Team. They are always busy keeping our flats and communal areas looking good for the families living here and could do with an extra pair of hands to help them out.
