More about our service:

Care and Repair services offer personal and technical support to people facing the difficult task of repairing, improving or adapting a home which is no longer suited to the person's needs.

The provision of advice and information is a central part of Care and Repair's role, as well as providing practical assistance with grant applications and coordinating repairs. Care and Repair is a home-based and personalised service, which puts the client in control of decisions.
