Can we help?
WE Care & Repair is the Home Improvement Agency for the West of England. We are a not-for-profit organisation with charitable status whose guiding purpose is to enable older and disabled people to continue living independently. We aim to help as many people as we can, and to provide an affordable service that reflects individuals’ needs.
If you wish to read more about our activities and the help we have been able to offer our clients in each of the last three years, please click the links to our Annual Reports on this page.
Our services are available to homeowners and private tenants in the areas we cover who are over 60 or who are disabled. Some of our services are free and some will involve a charge. We will always let you know of any costs in advance and you can always decide not to have the work done.
Beware of rogue traders
Rogue traders are unscrupulous workmen who often target elderly and vulnerable people. They usually call at your door and dupe the householder. One common trick is to give a quote but then raise the price once work has begun.
The message on the Avon and Somerset police rogue trader page is clear:
"If in doubt, keep them out". Recommendations from friends or family are often a good solution, and it's best to get three quotes from reputable firms - we are very happy to help you with this.
Home Improvement Agencies
Home Improvement Agencies or HIAs are an essential component in any integrated care system. The short video below (produced for Foundations, The National Body for Home Improvement Agencies) illustrates why.
