Home Adaptations / Heating Repairs

The Dolphin Society shares similar aims to WE Care & Repair, the independent charity which provides reliable and low cost services and advice to older and disabled homeowners and private tenants in the Bristol area, to help them stay safe and independent. Accordingly we channel some funding through WE Care & Repair to enable them to undertake minor adaptations to the homes of people who fit the Society's criteria, for example installing a walk-in shower or providing a ramp to replace steps. The funding is also used to pay for emergency repairs for example to heating systems.

Case Study:

President, John Hollingdale and President Elect, Vanessa Moon met with Olive, a WE Care & Repair client, relieved to have the necessary repairs made to stop water leaking into her spare bedroom. Having had cowboy builders making promises and not finishing the work had left Olive unable to sleep at night for worrying about water damage and her home security.
