Welcome to Preston Care and Repair
We are an independent charitable organisation working across the Lancashire boroughs of Preston, South Ribble, West Lancashire and Chorley.
We provide practical support as well as advice and information to enable older, disabled and vulnerable people to stay safe, secure, warm and independent in their own homes. We do this through a range of services and support, which broadly fall into these areas: home repairs & adaptations, handyperson service, trusted assessment and advice & information.
We are one of six organisations across Lancashire who deliver Lancashire County Council’s Integrated Home Improvement Service. The service aims to support independent living for people who have a long term condition that affects their mobility and/or their ability to live safely and independently at home.
