Our Vision Mission and Values

Our Vision is safe, secure, warm homes for all – enabling independent living and improving health and wellbeing. We achieve our vision through our mission which is to help people who need support to be safe, secure, warm and independent in the home of their choice.

We understand the importance of good housing and how that benefits people’s health and wellbeing. Where we find poor living conditions and extreme hardship in relation to people’s living accommodation, we strive to remove it and support those in need in every way we can.

We are a not-for-profit charitable organisation, which means any money that we make goes back into the organisation to support vulnerable people who cannot afford to pay for our services.

Our values guide our work daily. These are:

  1. We put people first and treat our clients the way we would like our own family or loved ones to be treated.
  2. We are passionate and determined about enabling people to live independently in safe, secure, warm homes.
  3. We act with integrity and show pride in everything we do.
  4. We listen to our clients and involve them in developing our services.
  5. We work together as one team and trust each other to deliver.
  6. We set high standards of success and continually seek to find improvements.
  7.  We work in partnership to ensure we achieve the best outcomes in the most effective ways.


Our Charges

We work hard to keep our service charges to a minimum. Many of our services are offered free of charge or for a subsidised hourly rate, plus the cost of any materials. Where there is a charge for a service, we will always let you know in advance, and you can always decide not to have the work done.

Our advice is always free!
