Handbrake adjustment

Hi All.

We have an 02 4.8 manual patrol, and to put it mildly, the handbrake doesn't work. Reef it on, and if there is a slope, the car will roll. At the moment, all that is holding the car is the fact we are leaving it in gear.
How hard is it to adjust the handbrake, and what should we look out for?
Should anything be replaced, or will a simple adjustment do?
Has anyone ever done this at home before?

Your shoes shouldn't wear unless they were adjusted wrong in the first place, you should never adjust the cable and not the shoes.
Jeez this one got silly really quick,

Just like the handbrake after a glass or two:coffeeti:
