London Borough of Croydon

The service is for council tenants only, with children under 5, living in any area of the borough (checks will be made to ensure they are in a council property).

The service is now free to those eligible council tenants including the provision of up to 2 stair gates and/or fire guards.

A Home Safety Officer will carry out a free home safety check and give practical help and advice on ways to improve safety such as:

  • fitting safety equipment, cupboard catches and socket covers
  • checking plugs and fuses
  • loaning stair gates and fireguards 

The home safety check takes about one hour. If you are eligible and would like to book a home safety check please contact the Home Safety Team.
