The Fire Support Network has launched a FREEPHONE number 0800 953 0065 to give people support and advice regarding keeping themselves safe in their own homes and help with clearing clutter or keeping gardens tidy.
Also as part of their CCG-funded project – Remove to Improve – they can offer Sefton residents a free property and lifestyle MOT visit to minimise hazards and risks, optimise self-care and prevent admission to hospital. As a result of the visit, the resident could get help with things such as grab rails, hand rails, a key safe, external security lighting. Basically, small interventions that can minimise the risk of falls. People just need to ring the FREEPHONE number above and ask about the property and lifestyle visits.
