We specialise in repairs, adaptations and home maintenance, giving older people in Wales safety and peace of mind. We improve homes to change lives.
Our vision is a Wales where all older people can live independently at home. We believe that no older person should live in a cold, unsafe or inaccessible home, that’s why our caring and trusted staff are ready to help.
With a decrease in income and physical mobility, it is no wonder that many older people struggle and feel vulnerable. Through local Care & Repair Agencies we support over 50,000 older people in Wales each year, doing vital repairs and home adaptations where they’re needed most.
We’ve seen first-hand how improving a home can change a person’s life, while also taking the strain from loved ones, carers and health services.
We passionately believe in the rights of older people to have decent housing and to live independently for as long as they wish. Through research, campaigning for improved government policy, and working in partnership with other organisations we champion the housing needs of older people in Wales.
At Care & Repair, we do not accept that any older person should:
• Live in a home unsuitable to their needs
• Become ill because they live in a cold home
• Live in a house that is hazardous or unfit for habitation
• Be without necessary adaptations to help them live independently with dignity in their own home
