   Do you need help to adapt your home?    19 February, 2018

South Cambs District Council continues to recognise the health and social benefits of enabling our residents to live in a home that meets their needs, especially as those needs change, so we’d like to take the opportunity to remind residents that we have funding available for adaptations and essential repairs. For adaptations, residents should initially contact Cambridgeshire Direct on 0345 0455202  who will, if needed, arrange an Occupational Therapy Assessment.

Cambs Home Improvement Agency formed in 2012 as a partnership between 3 local district councils - customers requiring help with work such as roofing repairs, damp work, replacement windows and doors or new boilers are encouraged to contact the agency for information about what is available.
