Free advice and support about how to repair or adapt the home and advice on how to access funding to carry out the works through grants, charity applications, equity release or customers who wish to self fund.

How to access or apply for it:

People can call the agency direct or a referral is made from one of our partner organisations, the NHS, OT’s and social workers or our sign posting service called Contact and Connect.

If it is a handy person enquiry an appointment is arranged from the initial enquiry to either complete the work or an inspection is carried out to access the work required

Additional information:

We are working in partnership with Coventry University to develop a tool kit to support people who hoard. Funding for the project has been arranged using the Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) scheme and have an occupational therapist graduate working on the project based within the agency.
