Blue Lamp Trust continues to provide free home safety visits to Hampshire and Isle of Wight’s most vulnerable

Hampshire Constabulary wanted to share an update with you from our partners, The Blue Lamp Trust, of which our Chief Constable Olivia Pinkney is a Trustee.

The Blue Lamp Trust runs a scheme, which it has done so throughout and now beyond the current COVID pandemic, called the Bobby Scheme. It provides free home security visits, long-life smoke alarms and advice to vulnerable residents in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, particularly the elderly and victims of burglary and domestic abuse. A full crime prevention and fire safety survey is carried out by one of their specialist trained, police-vetted, fitters. They will provide both general and specific crime and fire prevention advice to improve resident home safety. When appropriate their fitters will fit items such as locks, spy-holes, door chains and smoke alarms, etc. This service is completely free. The Bobby Scheme can also supply and fit police approved key safes for a small donation. The Bobby Scheme is free to those who are vulnerable due to age (over 65), circumstance, disabled, or a victim of household crime. Anyone can make a referral including individuals, friends, family, doctors, social workers, etc. via the Blue Lamp Trust website – https://bluelamptrust.org.uk/bobby-scheme-landingpage/ – or by ringing  0300 777 0157.
