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.
