Home improvement and adaptations

You At Home, our experienced home improvement agency, can help you with support and guidance for all home improvements and adaptations. We can also sometimes provide financial assistance for small scale emergency repairs.

The agency has achieved a Foundation National Home Improvement Agency Quality Mark covering these areas:

Handyperson service

  • Funding for repairs and adaptations
  • Support for choice
  • Connecting with health
  • Major adaptations
  • Handyperson service

Our handyperson team may be able to help with small adaptations like ramps, half steps, handrails, home safety and security work, and a wide range of small repairs to help you remain independent or to ensure you can return home from hospital. In some cases a small fee will be charged for work undertaken.

Our handyperson team are Trust Mark accredited, which means they are accredited as a reputable provider of repair, maintenance and improvement work at your home. If we can't help directly, the handyperson team may be able to refer you to someone who can offer assistance.

Disabled Facilities Grant

If you or someone you live with is disabled, a Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG) may help pay for an adaptation like showers and stairlifts. DFGs are awarded for adaptations which help people access their home, and for adaptations which improve comfort, safety and independence.
