Mears Home Improvement Service in Brighton and Hove works in partnership with, and is funded by, Brighton and Hove City Council. We offer help and support to older people, or those with disabilities, who are homeowners or renting in the private sector. Our primary goal is to help you retain your independence at home. Through our Housing Options Service we provide practical help and guidance to help meet your current and future needs.
For most people being able to remain living in their own home for as long as possible is of the utmost importance. We can help you if you need adaptations to your home that will make living there easier. Our comprehensive service provides help and guidance throughout the process. From advice on the availability of grants or other funding options, drawing up the plans for any works you need, appointing trusted contractors to undertake the work and ensuring that it is completed to the right standard, we will manage the process for you from start to finish. All staff are DBS checked and are salaried and do not earn commission so you will be under no obligation or pressure to use our services.
For some people the best option is to move to a more suitable home for their later years, but they are often deterred by the complexity of the house moving process. Our fully trained caseworkers can help you decide on the best option to meet your needs and will give you full support throughout the process, from start to finish. From selling your home, to finding and moving into a new home we will help you every step of the way. Once you have moved we can also help you make any necessary adaptations to your new home.
Our support and advice service also includes:
- Availability of grants from statutory bodies
- Helping you to obtain other local support services
- Checking whether you are entitled to any financial help, for example, disability benefits, or money to help you repair or adapt your home
- Additional services such as care or support in the home
- Helping you to make your home more energy efficient
