The aim of Care and Repair is to give help and support to home owners and private tenants to adapt, maintain, repair or improve their homes.

Who is eligible?

This service is available to home owners and tenants of private landlords in the Falkirk Council area, who are of any age and who have a disability or are aged 60 or over.

How can Care and Repair help you?

We offer a free advice service to:

  • Assist you in the process of adapting your home along with Social Work
  • Direct you to websites to find suitable Contractors and Professionals for your required works - for example Buy With Confidence which is a website run by Trading Standards
  • Help you apply for an Adaptation or Repair Grant (if required)
  • Signpost you to other agencies that may be able to assist you

Please note: The Care and Repair Service cannot recommend contractors or consultants.

What about the cost?

The Care and Repair service is free.

Grants are available from us to help with the cost of certain works including major adaptations (work) for disabled people. Sometimes extra help may also be available from benefits agencies or charitable organisations.
