A NEW home help service based in Blackburn has already got off to a flying start.

Ronnie Brown and Beverley Harris, of the fledgling community interest company Community Home Help, are hoping to help out the elderly, disabled and socially-disadvantaged in the borough.

The pairing is already well-versed in the industry, through their association with Prestige Services.

Several clients have already signed on the dotted line for the venture, which has a bank of vetted staff on standby.

Ronnie is targetting those who wish to remain independent in their own homes, wanting help with tasks such as shopping, cleaning and attending health appointments,
