Statement regarding the closure of Swan Care and Repair Home Improvement Agency

New Swan Logo

Following changes made to Essex County Council's funding of care and support services across Essex,  the Council  is unable to continue to fund Swan Care and Repair Home Improvement Agency based in Colchester, which has been providing services in Mid and North Essex since 2011.  The agency will therefore close on 31 March 2017.

We are very proud of the work that the team at Swan Care and Repair have carried out since 2011.  They have supported over 7,000 clients during this time, completing over:

  • 4,000 handy person jobs

  • 1,000 home from hospital jobs

  • 600 adaptations

  • 200 falls prevention jobs

The team have worked hard to complete all case work and have written to all clients to confirm that, should they need support in future, the following agencies may be able to help:
