Home Support

The Home Support Scheme is managed by Howard Cottage and funded by the Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation and assists people living in Letchworth Garden City to access information and advice to help them maintain their independence.  

We can help you access advice on:

  • Improving social life and making new friends in a similar situation
  • Arranging for help around the home
  • Using the Ernest Gardener Day Hospital for physio
  • Assisting with any adaptations that may be helpful such as applying for level access showers or grab rails
  • Managing debts
  • Maximising benefits

This service is for home owners and private renters who are either aged  55 or above or any age living with a disability.


For more information please contact our Home Support Officer, Rachel Horne, on 01462 683307.
