Handy Van Network and Safer Homes - South Derbyshire
The Handy Van is available to anyone over the age of 60 and can provide Fire Safety and Security checks, install equipment such as Smoke Alarms and Carbon Monoxide Detectors and provide Energy Efficiency advice. It can also help with practical tasks such as changing light bulbs, hanging curtains and securing carpets. This scheme can also provide and fit Key Safes, which can be crucial in allowing an individual to continue living in their own home.
The Safer Homes scheme is designed to improve safety and security in the homes of older (over 60) and vulnerable residents by installing door or window locks and other security equipment. We can also offer crime prevention advice.
Both of the schemes are open to residents of South Derbyshire and are free of charge. Clients can refer themselves, or can be referred by a relative or a health professional.
