Wanted: Dependable contractors

Care & Repair is here to help older people live independently in warm, safe and accessible homes. Much of our work takes the form of a wide range of practical repairs and adaptations in people’s homes. This could be anything from fitting a keysafe outside someone’s front door, to completely adapting a bathroom for someone who needs more accessibility.

Each of our local agencies has a core team of handypersons led by Technical Officers, who will assess and complete a lot of this work. This team is supported by a network of trusted independent contractors, who can add support when our own capacity is reached or bring expertise of their particular trade.

This is where you come in. Our agencies are working hard to meet an increased demand for our help, and are looking for tradespeople to join their lists of trusted contractors.

We will be able to refer our clients to you to complete specific work in their homes. While we can’t guarantee a particular level of referrals to you, we have a very happy working relationship with dozens of contractors across Wales.

You should be:

  • Reliable and dependable
  • Able to communicate well with older people
  • Fully insured, and registered with/certified by your relevant trade body/bodies
  • Adopting safe working practices at all times, with particular reference to social distancing and wearing PPE during the Coronavirus pandemic
  • Able to supply references

Below is a list of local agencies who have specific needs at this time. If your particular trade isn’t listed in your area, you’re still welcome to contact us to enquire about joining our preferred contractors lists. Click here for details of Care & Repair in your area.
