Health Partnerships

People’s health and economic status, such as  their mobility, mental health, smoking habits, and finding it difficult to heat their home, affects the risk of having a fire and the ability to escape from fire.

We would love to hear from organisations which we can work with to help keep people safe.



We can signpost people to partner agencies and organisations offering help and support. This may be as part of a Home Safety Visit or during community events and interactions. 

Collaborative work with GP surgeries

We work with GP surgeries to deliver home safety visits to those most at risk from accidental dwelling fires.

So far 10 surgeries have come forward to be part of this innovative project, and invitations offering home safety visits have been sent to those people on the falls, frailty and Dementia registers.

This project will be expanded, so we can continue to deliver home safety visits to the most vulnerable people in our community.
