What does it do?
Home Matters enables older people to organise and manage their personal finances and household administration. The services is free to all users and aims to enable people to remain independent for as long as possible.
A member of our Home Matters team will visit you at home and listen to your concerns. Our friendly Home Matters Team can help with:
- contacting utility companies
- organising the payment of bills
- setting up a bank account
- form filling, for example, blue badge applications
- looking at household budgets
- organising a move
If we are unable to help we will signpost you to an appropriate agency who will be able to assist. Our Home Matters staff can visit you at home; either a single visit or a series of visits depending on your needs.
