Home Safety Equipment Scheme – Early Years

Home Safety December Newsletter is out now! – Click HERE

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, which supplies a variety of safety items such as stair gates, bed guards, fireguards and cupboard locks.

You can get this help if you live in Brighton and Hove and any of the following are true:

  • Have a child under the age of 2
  • You are a young parent (under 20)
  • You are receiving benefits (e.g. Universal Credit, Income Support)
  • Have a child who is more at risk of unintentional injury at home
  • You have attended hospital with your child because of an unintentional injury at home

    Safety Net can also give you advice if your child is under 5 and more at risk of injury in the home.

As part of this scheme, Safety Net also visits local children’s centres to talk to parent groups about ‘Keeping children safe at home’.
