Home Improvement Agencies
Home Improvement Agencies (HIAs) are often referred to as 'Care and Repair' or 'Staying Put' services. They are not-for-profit organisations and their aim is to help elderly, disabled or other vulnerable people to stay in their own homes. They do this through helping people to repair, improve, maintain or adapt their homes.
