Advice for carers

If you care for a loved one, or work in the care sector, there is much you can do to help keep the person you care for safe.

Anyone who needs care support is particularly vulnerable to the dangers of fire, for a variety of reasons:

To give the best possible care, you need to:

We offer free Safe & Well visits, where we come to the home at a convenient time to see what we can do together to make you or the person you care for safer. We will fit free smoke alarms where required.

The appointment normally lasts about an hour and covers topics such as using electricity safely, cooking safely, making an escape plan, what to do if there is a fire and night-time routines. We can also identify and discuss any further support you may need if necessary.

To request a free Safe and Well Visit, please call 0800 038 2323 or click here.

It’s also a good idea to get some training on how to recognise fire risks. This will help you to spot signs that may indicate the person you care for is at risk of injury from fire and what steps you can take to reduce those risks. There’s a good free online course available at www.tsa-voice.org.uk/fire-safety-in-the-home
