Staying in your home

With a little extra help you may be able to remain independent in your own home.

Our Help to stay in your home web page provides details of help if you are experiencing financial, neighbour or landlord issues. However, if your issues are more of a housing repair/maintenance nature we would recommend that you contact the Craven Home Improvement Agency.

The Craven Home Improvement Agency are part of the Yorkshire Housing Care and Support service and they offer a broad range of advice on services available which may include elements of social care-services, healthcare-services, housing repairs and maintenance, telecare services, aids and adaptations.

They also provide a Handyman service which can carry out a range of works including:

  • small household repairs
  • adaptations
  • maintenance works
  • safety checks

There may be a small charge for this work depending on your financial circumstances.

They can also provide advice on energy efficiency and accessing benefits and/or grants.
