Our mission is to support older people to repair, adapt and maintain their homes. We do this so that all older people are able to live in safe, secure, warm and comfortable homes which suits them and their lives and maximises their independence.
We provide a number of services that support and help older people complete repairs, improvements and adaptations to their homes, through the provision of expert advice, support and practical assistance. We help older people with works ranging from very small items such as the repairing of a small water leak or the installation of handrails through to major jobs such as bathroom conversions or replacing a roof.
Key to our success in delivering our services is our commitment to providing and delivering holistic, problem-led services that are tailored according to the individual needs of older people.
