Care and Repair Agencies
Care & Repair Agencies
Care & Repair Agencies work to help older and disabled owner-occupiers to remain in their own homes, in their own communities, living as independently as possible, through providing information about choices that can improve safety, security, comfort and convenience.
They do this by bringing together the expertise and finance needed to carry out the necessary repairs, improvements and/or adaptations to enable older or disabled people to remain in their own homes. This takes the form of advice and information, helping to apply for grant assistance where needed, practical assistance in the form of carrying out repairs quickly, as well as being able to pass on details of reputable builders.
The work undertaken can range from small items, a dripping tap, the installation of handrails or new locks, to major jobs such as building a specially adapted bathroom or replacing a roof.
Care & Repair Agencies provide support to older and disabled people throughout the process.
There is a Care & Repair Agency in every county in Wales. To find your nearest Care & Repair Agency, scroll down the page and click on your nearest Agency.
