Sure Steps

Manchester Care & Repair’s Home Safety Assessors are also experienced in dealing with safety issues relating to young children, as well as older people. Over recent years we have trained a large number of professionals, such as SureStart staff and Health Visitors, to carry out safety assessments.

If you have a child aged 4 or under you can be referred to this scheme and, if assessed as in need, we will arrange for a contractor to fit accident prevention equipment in your home. The following are the types of equipment that we can provide free of charge:

  • Stair gates
  • Door guards
  • Window locks (for wooden frames only)
  • Fridge locks
  • Table corner cushions
  • Fire guards
  • Smoke alarms
  • Socket covers
  • Cupboard locks

Please note that you can not self-refer for this service, you must be referred by a Health Professional to make use of Sure Steps.
