We are a specialist service, working to support you through the complexities and practicalities of moving home, or adapting your current one.

Deciding how to best deal with major transitions in our lives is tough, especially if there are no family or friends nearby. It's at times like these we need practical support from experienced and knowledgeable people.

Moving

Moving can be a long and difficult process, whether you own or rent. There are so many decisions to be made and things to organise. Our aim is to give support at your pace.

Adapting

Our homes often need to be changed to deal with different stages in our life. Some of these things are obvious, like replacing a bath with a shower. Other situations need a bit more thought.

Advising

Once you have made a decision to either move or adapt, you may not be aware of the options available to you, or how to go about it. We want you to use our knowledge an experience.

Who we help

Most people contact us directly, once they have been signposted to our service. Our contract is with you, the individual and we work to your remit, however large or small.

We welcome calls from concerned families and friends, who see their loved ones struggling to manage at home. We have the knowledge and experience to help.
