If your home requires larger adaptations or repairs work than our own Technicians can complete, we are still able to provide help and support to ensure your peace of mind.
Getting large scale works completed can be a daunting task – identifying the exact nature of the work required, finding reliable contractors, specifying the scope of works, getting value for money and ensuring good quality work can make the process quite stressful.
We are able to take that stress away. Our Technical and Casework Officers are trained and experienced in helping to support you with larger adaptations and repairs work. Our support can range from simple advice and information right through to project managing work on your behalf. A Technical Officer will visit you at home to assess the work and explain the different options available to you. This initial advice and support is always free and includes signposting you to reliable contractors.
If you would like us to manage your adaptation or repair work for you, our team of Caseworkers and Technical Officers can oversee and project manage work for you, relieving you of the stress and anxiety of organising the work yourself. They will plan the work, agree costs and liaise with the contractors to ensure the work is done properly. This service is chargeable and we will always provide a no obligation, written quotation at the start of the project.
Our Caseworkers can advise you about government grants or benefits to help pay for the work, and tell you about other organisations that may be able to help you financially.
