Safer Homes South Derbyshire

What is Safer Homes South Derbyshire?

Safer Homes is working to improve security in the homes of elderly and vulnerable people.  The scheme works by giving advice on crime prevention and home security. In some cases we are able to install additional door and window locks and other appropriate equipment free of charge.

The scheme has been set up by the Safer South Derbyshire Partnership, which is operated on a day-to-day basis by South Derbyshire CVS.
