Somerset Independence Plus (SIP) is the council’s preferred home improvement agency.
Home improvement agencies are local, trusted organisations that help older, disabled and vulnerable people with reliable information and advice. They support people to make modifications to their homes as their health and needs change, through later years especially.
SIP – which is part of Somerset Council – provides a range of services to make your home safe, secure, warm and easier to manage. We can provide:
• home safety checks
• full support with applying for Disabled Facilities Grants and other financial assistance
• information, advice and guidance about the options available to improve your independence, comfort, safety and security of your home
• assistance with home improvements including improving the insulation and heating in your home
The service also offers detailed customer assessments, and the option to receive advice with any equipment needs, which can be done at one of our Independent Advice Centres operated by Somerset Council – Adult Social Care. Offering customers an efficient solution, creating a more joined up approach between statutory services.
