Care & Repair - Home
Welcome to Care and Repair
We are part of a “not-for-profit” Home Improvement
Agency (HIA) which provides a range of services to help people
live independently in their homes in an environment which is
healthy, safe and secure.
We provide a service to help older people, people
with disabilities and people on a low income to adapt, repair
and improve heir homes. We currently work
across three districts providing a service to those living in
West Norfolk, Breckland and Fenland. To find out more please click
on the relevant link at the side of the page.
We also provide, as part of
the HIA, a Careline alarm service and a Handypersons
The Careline service provides emergency assistance
24 hours a day, every day of the year at a reasonable weekly
charge, and this is available to anyone.
The Handypersons service, whilst providing minor works to the
home, also provides a low level prevention service. This includes
our Home Assessment and provision of some Assistive Technology
To find out more about this service please go to the following

FirstStop. This is a Government-funded organisation which provides

statutory organisations and supported by a range of voluntary
organisations, Care and Repair has helped several thousands clients
since it was established in 1999.
