Care and repair can help by: 

  • Organising surveys and drawings
  • Obtaining prices for work
  • Applying for improvement and repair grants
  • Applying for loans or other funding
  • Organising the works
  • Approaching other agencies who may be able to provide help

Care and repair services are delivered by different organisations in each area.
