Handy Van

The Legion's handy van service, Poppy Calls, helps ex-Service people and their families with small household repairs and minor adaptations.

What is it?

If you're having trouble with those small household repairs and minor adaptations around your home and are one of our beneficiaries, The Royal British Legion can provide our handy van service known as Poppy Calls.

We have a dedicated and trusted team of experienced handypeople who are fully trained to carry out low-level maintenance in your home, including:

  • Changing light bulbs and tap washers
  • Putting up shelves, curtain rails and grab rails
  • Fitting smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors
  • Fitting and changing door locks and other security features
  • Building access ramps and storage sheds to house Legion-provided Electrically Propelled Vehicles
  • Installing care phones.

Call us for free on 0800 032 0306 or email homesupportadmin@britishlegion.org.uk. If we can help, we will.

We currently have handy vans in 21 counties and partnerships with other organisations (such as Age UK) that will offer you the same service on behalf of the Legion if we don’t cover your area. We can also provide support through your local Legion office.

Please get in touch to find out more.

Peace of mind

Security is important to us, so all of our handypeople have been cleared by the Criminal Records Bureau. They carry ID at all times, wear Legion-branded uniforms and drive instantly recognisable Legion-branded vehicles.

How do I find out more?

If you have a question about our handy van service, please phone us between 9am to 5pm on 0800 032 0306 to speak to a member of our friendly team. Or email us at homesupportadmin@britishlegion.org.uk
