Assisted gardening and decorating scheme

If you are a Havebury tenant over 65 or have a disability with no-one to help you manage, we can assist you with grass and hedge cutting and decorating one room each year.

If you would like any further information on our gardening or decorating schemes, please contact our independent living team.


Specialist improvements to your home

Havebury can provide tenants with minor adaptations like fitting of grab rails, lever taps and additional stair rails.

For all major adaptations, including level access showers and stair lifts, you will need to make your request to Suffolk Community Services.
