Local service (Fylde, Wyre).

What it costs:

Advice and home visits are free of charge. Some charges are made for other services, but full details would be provided before the work goes ahead.

Care and Repair aims to assist people who are seeking a reputable contractor. It is not an agent for either the householder or the contractor but a facilitator for which a fee is charged to the client for services relating to any building work.

How to access or apply for it:

By telephone (01253 887569), fax (01253 887568), email (careandrepair@wyre.gov.uk) or by calling in to Wyre Council offices in Poulton le Fylde.

What to expect then:

Once you have contacted us a caseworker will arrange to visit you in your home to assess the type of work required. They will discuss your options with you.

If you decide to go ahead with one of the options, Care and Repair staff will arrange for estimates from reliable contractors and will then oversee the work from start to finish.
