More than 7,000 city households have received help from Peterborough City Council’s Care and Repair service in the past 12 months. 

The service helps vulnerable, older and disabled people to stay independent in their own home and keep warm and safe.

The Care and Repair team aims to prevent falls, accidents and improve the home environment. Much of this work involves adapting people’s homes, for example installing grab rails, ramps, stair lifts and even building extensions.

The team also offers support for vulnerable householders to keep warm, safe and dry during the winter months by installing insulation, new boilers or central heating.

More information can found on the council’s website, or you can call 863895 or email care&repair@peterborough.gov.uk to find out more.
