Although the office remains closed to the public our main phone line will still be answered and we can provide services and advice.  If no one answers first time, please leave a message and we will call you back during normal working hours.

Our Small Repairs service is restricted to external and essential works only e.g. where there is a threat to health, safety or security.  The adaptations service is operating fully and we are observing Covid-19 Scottish Government guidelines on social distancing and use of PPE.

We will update this information as necessary.


Care & Repair provides free and confidential advice and practical assistance to people who are older or have disabilities and live in Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire and Inverclyde. The aim is to enable repairs and adaptations to be carried out to allow our customers to maintain their independence and remain in their homes comfortably, safely and securely.

We have been operating since 1988 and are jointly funded by Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire and Inverclyde Councils.  We are managed by Bridgewater Housing Association and based in their offices in Erskine.

We provide a range of services (which are outlined on this website) and also work with a variety of organisations including Police Scotland, Scottish Fire & Rescue, Housing Associations, Seniors Forums, Charities and various local authority departments.  As well as providing practical help for our customers, we work with our partners to raise awareness of home safety and the dangers of cold callers and unscrupulous builders.
