Repairs, Adaptations and Improvements


We will not be providing face-to-face advice or training for the foreseeable future. We will contact existing advice clients by phone. Our staff will continue to support our members and can be reached via telephone and email as usual.

We are working hard to move our training, where possible, to digital. For any queries, please contact our training team at [email protected]

We can only provide advice to people living in Northern Ireland.

For as long as you are able, it may always seem the best option to stay in your own home in later life. As long as your home is fit for purpose, that is.

An adapted shower.It may be that your home needs repairing so that it adds to the quality of your life. Otherwise, as you get older, your home may have to be adapted or improvements made so that your needs are met. The bonus is that you get to stay in your own home.

So whether you own your own home, privately rent or you are a tenant of a social landlord such as the Northern Ireland Housing Executive or a Housing Association, this section could help you decide whether your home could be fixed to meet your changing needs.

Help with costs

In fact, there may even be grants or schemes to help you with the cost.
