Safety in the Home

Safety in the Home supports families in reducing preventable home accidents through provision and installation of home safety equipment.

The aim of Fresh Futures Safety in the Home Service is to reduce the risk and prevent childhood accidents in the home by supplying and fitting home safety equipment into the property of eligible families.

This can include safety gates, fire guards, bathmats, cupboard locks, corner cushions and cord winders.

Fresh Futures focus on the top 5 most common childhood accidents that occur in the home such as slips, trips and falls, burns and scalds, poisoning, fire and strangulation.

Our fitters provide families with information and advice on how to reduce these risks.

As part of this service, Fresh Futures are also working in partnership with West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue service to ensure every eligible family also receives a free home fire safety check, which can result in new smoke detectors being fitted.
