Care and Repair Services


Come along to Ely Market on thursday this week for your chance to get free advice from East Cambridgeshire District Council's Care and Repair Services.

Joining the Care and Repair team will be the Council's Sustainability Officer who will be offering advice on how to save money on your energy bills, and staff from the Council's Environmental Services.

Care and Repair Services assist elderly, disabled and vulnerable people in East Cambridgeshire to organise building related works to their own homes that will allow them to remain living independently, safely and comfortably.

We have a friendly and experienced team who will work with you to help you to apply for a Disabled Facilities Grant for adaptations, or apply for a Minor Works Grant for repairs.

Care and Repair specialise in organising adaptations, for example level access showers or extensions to provide sleeping, showering, bathing and toilet facilities.  The staff work closely with the occupational therapists, draw plans, arrange planning applications, obtain contractors’ quotations and inspect the building work.

Our caseworkers will visit you in their your home to give you free confidential advice on repairs, adaptations and improvements to your home.

We are available to individuals, relations, carers or professionals such as occupational therapists or social workers.
