Adapting and improving your home

We can offer advice and guidance for essential home repairs, adaptations and general maintenance. We even offer a home improvement service for homeowners and private tenants.

We offer a home improvement service called 'Runnymede Care and Repair' for people who are either over 60 or have a disability.
If you need to make changes to your home to suit the needs of someone with a disability, you may be able to get a Disabled Facilities Grant to help with the costs.
If you rent from a private landlord, you can expect your home to be kept in a good condition. You should report any problems to your landlord as soon as possible, such as dampness or a broken boiler. We can help you if your landlord is unwilling to carry out repairs.
A damp house can cause timber frames in windows and doors to rot and can lead to respiratory health issues.
