Kevin has been Chief Executive of WE Care and Repair since 2015. It is the largest independent Home Improvement Agency in the UK, covering most of the West of England and is commissioned by local authorities in Bristol, North Somerset, Bath and North East Somerset and Gloucestershire. Recognised as innovators in their sector for championing the importance of the home as an integral part of health and wellbeing, We Care & Repair provide a wide range of services from Information and Advice, through Minor Adaptations and Handyperson service to major building projects. Kevin is passionate about promoting the positive role that home adaptations can have in retaining independence and always on the lookout for lovingly designed products that we would be proud to have in our own homes. He was previously Managing Director of Simplyhealth Independent Living and a Director of BHTA and a Naidex Ambassador.
Adaptations can help us live independently in our own homes for longer, prevent falls and ultimately having to move into residential care, but the attitude from many older people to home adaptations is “No thanks, I can manage” How do we change the narrative from giving in, to taking control and what will it take for suppliers to realise that customers are proud of their homes and want products with great design?
