Cambs Home Improvement Agency was set up in Spring 2012, bringing together three separate Local Authority Agencies in Cambridge City, Huntingdonshire and South Cambridgeshire.

We repair, improve and adapt homes to enable people to continue to live independently. We work with people of all ages, including disabled children, adults, older people, those who have terminal conditions and people who are living in poor housing conditions. We work mainly with people who own or privately rent their homes (although we also do works for tenants in Luminus Group properties in Huntingdonshire and for other Registered Social Landlords).

Mr W: thought I must take this opportunity to thank you for what you have done for me ....I think I would have been in a tremendous state if you had not helped me.

Ms H: Thank you from the bottom of my heart to let you know as a result of the Home Improvement Grant scheme my bathroom is a safe, risk free space. I have never disclosed the need for help before and it was a positive experience.

 Ms F: The bathroom adaptation is completed and am enjoying the benefit of it immensely. It has made such an enormous difference difference. The builders were absolutely great and the whole project took just under two years from start to finish. Thank you and your team for all your help and support.

Ms H: The grant funded improvement works to my bathroom have been completed. The workmanship is excellent. I have been climbing over a cast iron bath for 10 years in order to shower and it made me cry to use the new level acess wet room. You do not realise the difficulties with everyday tasks until you have a comparison. This is life changing for me and it was a massive step to actually ask for help but stoicism didn’t ever make life easy but this definitely has. Please pass on my grateful thanks to all concerned.
