Home Improvement Agency Service

Home improvement agency in East Cambridgeshire

What does it do?

We have a friendly and experienced team who will work with you to help you to apply for a Disabled Facilities Grant for adaptations, or apply for a Minor Works Grant or Renovation Loan for repairs.

Care and Repair specialise in organising adaptations, for example level access showers or extensions to provide sleeping, showering, bathing and toilet facilities.  The staff work closely with the occupational therapists, draw plans, arrange planning applications, obtain contractors’ quotations and inspect the building work.

Our caseworkers will visit you in their your home to give you free confidential advice on repairs, adaptations and improvements to your home.

We are available to individuals, relations, carers or professionals such as Occupational Therapists or social workers.
