Care & Repair East Lothian

If you are a home owner or private tenant aged 60+, or 50+ with a disability, Care & Repair East Lothian can assist. It offers practical help and advice for adaptations and repairs to your home, and / or smaller repairs.

Care & Repair East Lothian provides an adaptations and repairs service to those who need advice on financing and carrying out housing improvements, repairs and maintenance - eg roof or window repairs or adaptations such as stairlifts, wet floor showers or ramps. This service is confidential and free of charge.

It was set up in 1987 and is managed by East Lothian Housing Association with support from the Scottish Government and East Lothian Council.

Their officers cannot carry out repairs themselves, but they can:

  • visit you to discuss what is required in terms of any adaptations and/or repairs to your home and offer advise
  • give you an idea of the costs involved
  • help you find suitable contractors to do the work
  • advise on any grants or charitable funding that might be available and assist you to complete the paperwork
  • provide advice and support throughout the work, including liaising with the contractor and others
  • direct you to other sources of help, if needed
