About Us

 

One of the oldest Home Improvement Agencies in the country, Care and Repair (Northamptonshire) was established in 1987 with a mixture of funding: from local and central Government, donations and charitable trusts. We are an independently managed charitable business (Reg IP25783R) and work closely with a number of other agencies and organisations.


 Over one third of owner occupiers whose homes are in need of major repairs are pensioners. The necessity to repair and improve a home and find the money to do so often uncovers other problems of a physical, social or financial nature that are contributing to a person's difficulties. Many retired homeowners or disabled people, for example, are unaware of their rights to benefit, grants and other support services, or are reluctant to claim them.


Care and Repair schemes are 'client orientated', responding to the needs and wishes of their clients. Hence the work carried out is only ever what the client wants, or can cope with, even though other work may be necessary from a technical expert's view to adequately improve the home.
