Care & Repair England


Care & Repair England is a small, national charitable organisation set up in 1986 to improve the homes and living conditions of older people.  It believes that all older people should be able to live in a decent home of their own choosing.

It strives to:

  • Ensure that more older people can live independently and with dignity in their own homes for as long as they wish
  • Connect housing, health and social care in ways that improve older people’s whole quality of life
  • Work with older people to influence decisions about housing & the related services which affect their live

They promote and support the development of practical housing solutions, particularly for older people living in private housing.

Through pioneering innovative projects with local partners they find out what works best for older people.  They then share good ideas and promote successful models.

Past examples of services which they initiated that are now part of the mainstream include:

  • Care & Repair schemes, which help older people undertake home repairs & adaptations
  • Handyperson services, providing free or low cost help with essential jobs in the home

More recently they have led the way on ‘peer to peer’ advice (see Silverlinks) and delivering housing advice in hospitals (see Health & Housing).
