A major employer in Preston is offering free emergency home repairs to all NHS and social care workers.


HomeServe, who have offices at Fulwood, are promising to repair home emergencies for free while lockdown is in place.

The firm has set aside £1million to cover the cost of boiler call-outs and other emergencies for those working on the front line in the battle against coronavirus.

HomeServe say the approximate three million NHS workers and social care workers in the UK don’t need to be an existing customer to take advantage of the free services.

They will do repairs including plumbing, drainage and heating through their network of engineers.

Founder and chief executive officer Richard Harpin said: All of our NHS and Social Care workers have shown enormous bravery and dedication in their response to the coronavirus crisis.

“During these trying times, a home emergency could become an additional source of disruption and anxiety when it’s needed the least.

“Everyone at HomeServe wants to do their bit to ensure that NHS and Social Care workers have working plumbing and hot water at home at the end of an exhausting shift, whether they are HomeServe customers or not.

“We hope that by offering them free emergency repairs, we can show how grateful we are at this time of intense difficulty. While you look after us, we’ll look after your homes.”
