Care and repair services

Care and Repair Services assist elderly, disabled and vulnerable people in East Cambridgeshire to organise building related works to their homes that will allow them to remain living independently, safely and comfortably.

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 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 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.
