We would like to improve awareness of our service to local residents in the South Cambridgeshire area. We are CAMBS HIA, a shared service, working across South Cambridgeshire District Council, Cambridge City Council and Huntingdonshire District Council. Our remit is to help elderly, disabled and vulnerable people apply for grant funding to get essential works done in their homes, enabling them to live safely and independently.
We work closely with Occupational Therapists who assess the person based on their medical needs to determine the required adaptation(s). We can then help the person apply for grant funding, including drawing up a schedule of work, getting quotations and dealing with all regulatory issues. We charge a fee for this service which forms part of the grant, if eligible.
We would be grateful if you could help promote our service to your constituents.
If you would like any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.
