Fees and Charges

Non-Pink Cardholders, on the other hand, are entitled to receive this service at a nominal fee. Rates vary according to the job required. Upon completion of the job the client pays the handyman who performed the task. The latter issues a temporary receipt and an official receipt is subsequently issued from the Active Ageing and Community Care Directorate. Both Pink Cardholders and Non-Pink Cardholders are required to provide the necessary materials at their own cost.
