Crossing the threshold of an individual’s home is an essential step to enable an individual’s risk factors and vulnerabilities (person, behaviour, and environment) to be fully assessed so we will now resume Safe & Well visits to all who are eligible (unless isolating). Please continue to get in touch if you or an individual you know meets the criteria and needs additional support.
Safe and Well is a free home fire safety visit, tailored to an individual’s needs that can support members of our community to help protect them and their home from fire.

Our dedicated team of firefighters, community safety officers and volunteers have a varied range of skills including British Sign Language (BSL) and are able to offer visits that are Dementia Friendly.
