Home Safety Equipment Scheme
Did you know that children aged 0 – 4 years old are the most at risk from accidents in the home? You can make your home safer through our home safety scheme, where parents and carers can apply for a variety of home safety items such as stair gates, bed guards, fireguards and cupboard locks.
You are eligible for the scheme if all of the following apply:-
- You live in Brighton and Hove
- Have a child under the age of 5
- You are receiving benefits (e.g. Income Support, Working Families Tax Credits)
- You need equipment or advice to help make your home safer
To find out more speak to your health visitor or Eleanor Davies our home safety co-ordinator on 01273 411613 or e-mail Eleanor.Davies@safety-net.org.uk
As part of this scheme, Safety Net also visits local children’s centres to talk to parent groups about ‘Keeping children safe at home’.
