Haringey care and repair

We provide a range of services, practical advice, guidance and support which help people maintain their independence so that they can continue to live in their own homes for as long as possible. Our care and repair teams work predominantly with homeowners and private tenants in Haringey.

Multitask membership scheme

Our multitask membership scheme in Haringey provides a range of services, including advice, project management and subsidised handyman and gardening services. The membership fee is just £30 a year.

We work with a range of customers, including:

  • people aged 60 and over
  • younger disabled people
  • people on low incomes

The services we provide vary depending on where you live and include:

  • advice on repairs and maintaining your home
  • help arranging grants, loans and funding towards the cost of work
  • technical help, preparing schedules and overseeing work carried out by reliable contractors
  • advice on maximising income and benefits
  • help accessing local services
  • gardening services

Paying for work

With so many grants, loans and funding schemes available, things can get a bit confusing or seem really daunting! However, there’s no need to worry – we have many years’ experience of helping our customers make sense of what financial help is out there and can also help you through the application process. You may of course also use your own personal savings to fund work.

Again, because of how funding is allocated across local authorities in England, the options available will depend on where you live. Options include:

  • Warmer homes, healthier living
    This scheme helps fund heating repairs and replacement for people with long-term health needs.
  • Handyperson service
    This service is available to older people and people with disabilities in Haringey. It helps customers maintain their independence by carrying out minor repairs and small adaptations.
  • Gardening Service
    We offer subsidised gardening service at £15.00 per hour including fencing and gate repairs.
