Putting care at the centre of Care & Repair
How we support the most vulnerable:
As much as possible, we try to supply our clients with the funding needed to improve and repair their home. However, if they do not meet the requirements for funding and also struggle to pay for the work themselves, they tend to be overlooked and their struggles are unseen and unheard. This is where we need your help.
Our Hardship Fund is set up to receive payments, large or small, that can go towards some of or a significant amount of a repairs job for a client in these situations. Anything that we receive will be used to ensure that someone without a working toilet for several weeks will have it fixed, a family that cannot use their water may be able to have their taps finally replaced and an elderly lady is finally able to leave her home with peace of mind after the extra funding covered a replacement lock for the front door.
The funding exists to cover essential repairs and improvements in exceptional circumstances. We will ensure that the people in the city of Leeds do not fall through the cracks.
