Papworth Trust, a home improvement agency based in Leicester and Leicestershire, helps people to adapt, repair or improve their homes. This is to help people maintain their independence and stay living in their own homes for longer in comfort and security.

Neighbourhood Guardians

The project supports older people with disabilities who are vulnerable to long-term ill health, crime, loss of independence and on a low income. Their caseworker assesses how to provide support and help direct people to other services in the community. They will also help in finding any grants and benefits available. Our volunteer Guardians provide ongoing support.

This project is being delivered in Belgrave, Thurncourt, Evington, Spinney Hills and Wycliffe.

Neighbourhood Task Squad

The project’s Task Squad and volunteers carry out one-off clearing, mending, gardening, decorating and cleaning in older people’s homes; bringing living spaces back up to standard and reinstating a sense of security and wellbeing.

This project is being delivered in Belgrave, Thurncourt, Evington, Spinney Hills and Wycliffe.
