Care and repair homepageThe Care and Repair (Wyre and Fylde) team offer advice and support with repairs and adaptations to the home and also operate a Handyperson Scheme.

Who can we help?

We can help people who:

  • Are aged over 65 or have a disability
  • Live in Wyre or Fylde
  • Need repairs or adaptations to their home
  • Want help to arrange works to their home
  • May need guidance on obtaining funds for works

How do we help?

If you decide you need our help all you need to do is contact us and let us know about your needs. 

What happens next?

Once you have contacted us a caseworker will arrange to visit you in your home to assess the type of work required. They will discuss your options with you.

If you decide to go ahead with one of the options, Care and Repair staff will arrange for estimates from reliable contractors and will then oversee the work from start to finish.

Is there a charge for Care and Repair services?

Advice and home visits are free of charge.

Care and Repair aims to assist people who are seeking a reputable contractor. It is not an agent for either the householder or the contractor but a facilitator for which a fee is charged to the client for services relating to any building work.

Do you need help to afford to improve your home?

The team can advise on:

  • Applying for local authority grants (where available)
  • Interest only loans and capital release schemes
  • Social fund loans
  • Claiming benefit entitlement
  • Help with form filling
  • Insurance claims
