Safe & Well visits

Free visits for the most vulnerable in our community

What is a Safe & Well visit?

A person centred home visit to identify and reduce risk to the occupier or occupiers, taking into account their behaviours and the social and physical environment in which they live.

The visit will combine a home safety check to reduce fire risk in the home, such as checking and fitting smoke alarms, with health referrals for extra support where appropriate, to improve the occupier’s health and wellbeing.

Safe & Well visits maximise the opportunity to prevent ill health and harm to people in our communities.

Who do we visit?

We offer a free visit to anyone aged 65 and over. By working with health and social care agencies we ensure we can reach the most vulnerable in our community.

Do you need a Safe & Well visit?
