This service is for council tenants 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 free for 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 1 hour. If you are eligible and would like to book a home safety check, contact the Home Safety Team:
