Our CARA (Care and Repair Action) service carries out small jobs such as hedge and grass cutting, minor carpentry, small paint jobs, replacing light bulbs, installing smoke alarms and moving light furniture for older and vulnerable people living in the Bray and North Wicklow areas.
"From the first telephone call to the finished result, I have found CARA totally professional and committed to their work. The workers were friendly and discreet."
The idea is to support you to remain in your own home and live as independently as possible by improving your housing conditions and making your home more comfortable.
"Care and Repair have done many great jobs for me that a tradesman wouldn’t be bothered to call out for. They have helped me keep my independence."
Our CARA staff will first carry out a home visit survey to assess the work that needs doing - all our staff are Garda vetted and carry BAP ID cards.
You only have to pay for the materials used - although we also gratefully accept voluntary donations.
This project is funded by Wicklow County Council and our SICAP programme.
