If you volunteer or work with Care & Repair Edinburgh, please read our guidance document. Unfortunately, we are unable to recruit new volunteers or carry out our Handyperson Service for non-emergency work at this time but would love to hear from you in the future.
We offer a range of practical services to help people repair, improve or adapt their homes
In the last 3 months we’ve fitted 296 keysafes and made 234 minor adaptations in the homes of older and disabled residents in Edinburgh.
Telephone call was dealt with promptly and advice given. It was reassuring to use a contractor that was recommended
It is so reassuring to know the trade people are vetted. Also, as always, the tradesman who came did a class job.
The hand rail at our back doorstep is just what we needed. The work was carried out promptly and efficiently by a pleasant worker. We are totally satisfied.
Calum is a very personable and competent young man. He listened carefully to the problem and fixed it. Can’t ask for more.
Very efficient service both on the telephone and by the joiner who came by to fit the keysafe. very impressed.
The key box was placed exactly where we wanted it to be put, with a maximum of efficiency and a minimum of fuss. You run a very good service which is greatly appreciated.
Alan is a gentleman. I’ve had him before and found him to be very helpful and willing to go the extra mile, by asking is there anything else I need done. This is an excellent service
Response from Care & Repair was prompt. Melvyn (volunteer) was caring and competent. A delightful man actually. I am so pleased that Care & Repair exists!
