Make Your Home Safer

Find out if you, or someone you know, is eligible for a free safety check at home

What will happen when you contact us? 

You will get through to one of our members of staff who will ask you a number of questions to find out if you are eligible for a visit.

What sort of questions will we ask you? 

We ask a range of questions such as whether there are people over 65 or 80 in the property.

   Other questions include:

  • if there anyone in the premise who uses oxygen/airflow mattresses
  • is there anyone in the premise with any reduced mobility/disabilities?    
  • is there anyone on the premise with hearing/sight impairments?
  • is there anyone who smokes in the property?    

Can you contact us on behalf of someone else? 

Yes – we would ask that you get their permission first and let them know that we will ask them a number of questions. 

Do we fit free smoke alarms?

In some cases, yes, we will fit free smoke alarms.
