COVID 19 – Due to current Government restrictions the Bobby Scheme is currently unable to carry out Safe and Secure visits. Online referrals can still be made during this period and will be dealt with once restrictions are lifted.
The Bobby Scheme, supported by Hampshire Constabulary and Hampshire Fire and Rescue, is a practical service which aims to bring peace of mind to the vulnerable and elderly, providing reassurance or restoring a sense of security within their own home particularly after a burglary. Improving home security also decreases the risk of future crimes. Proceeds from the Blue Lamp Trust’s training and taxi assessment services go into funding the Bobby Scheme.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
A full crime prevention and fire safety survey is carried out by one of our trained, police-vetted fitters. They will provide both general and specific crime and fire prevention advice to improve home safety. When appropriate our fitters will fit such items as locks, spy-holes, door chains and smoke alarms, etc. This service is completely free. The Blue Lamp Trust can supply and fit police approved key safes for a small donation.
MAKE A REFERRAL
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.
