Help with household repairs and maintenance

The Home Improvement Agency (HIA) provides advice, support and assistance to those who are aged 60 or over, disabled or vulnerable to help maintain their independence and stay warm, safe and secure at a home of their choosing.

The team works in partnership with Children's and Adult Social Care Services to install minor adaptions and sensory loss equipment around the home such as:

  • grabrails
  • banisters
  • handrails

It also delivers a hospital discharge service to help you return home after a hospital stay.

If you feel you need a care and support assessment, contact the First Contact Team:
