Torfaen care and repair provide a free comprehensive home improvement and advisory service to older and disabled people living in Torfaen to help them remain in their own homes in greater comfort warmth and security.

We do this by bringing together the expertise and finance needed to carry out the necessary repairs, improvements and/or adaptations to enable older or disabled people to remain in their own homes. This takes the form of advice and information, helping to apply for grant assistance where needed, practical assistance in the form of carrying out small-scale repairs and adaptations quickly, as well as being able to pass on details of reputable builders.

The work undertaken can range from small items, e.g. a dripping tap, putting up a curtain rail, the installation of handrails or new locks, to bigger jobs such as relaying external steps, ramps or external handrails. The Agency will also provide personal support, technical advice and supervise larger scale building works, such as building a specially adapted bathroom or replacing a roof.
