Why we’re here

We’re here to match skilled and vetted local tradespeople to customers who need jobs doing in their home, quickly and easily.

Local Heroes was set up by British Gas in 2016 when we realised how difficult it can be to find someone reliable and trustworthy to do skilled jobs in homes across Britain. Since then, we’ve been on a mission to make getting jobs done hassle-free.

We’ve come a long way since 2016, and today we have a network of over 7,000 local companies across the UK, covering almost every job in your home from plumbing to plastering and decorating to electrics. Our team thoroughly vet all of the tradespeople on the Local Heroes platform to make sure they’re up to the job. And we even guarantee their work, so you can be sure that it’s of top quality. When the job's done, there's no need to worry about cash, just pay online quickly and easily.

This amounts to one great service: a booking platform which puts the customer and tradesperson in control; lets you book at times which suit you; and gives you the reassurance that the work is guaranteed.
