Safer Homes Surveys

The Community Safety Team (CST) offer Safer Homes Surveys to members of our community who have been identified as a vulnerable or repeat victim of crime. 

What a Safer Home Survey includes

The Community Safety Team have undertaken specialist and accredited training to be able to offer up to date information on how to improve the security of your home.

The Community Safety Team are able to provide advice and guidance on a variety of issues to prevent crime, including signposting to specialist services such as the supply and fitting of security devices from a range of Secured by Design industry approved equipment.

Those members of the community identified as being vulnerable or at risk of becoming a victim of crime may be suitable for receiving additional services such as:

  •    Light timers
  •    Window shock alarms
  •    Additional safety measures

How to get a Safer Home Survey

If you are a tenant of a Registered Social Landlord (RSL) such as Trafford Housing Trust, your first call should be to them. You can find contact details for all RSLs on our RSL page.

If you are a private tenant or home owner you will normally need to be referred by a professional such as a Police Community Support Officer, or a Support Worker.

We can also attend community groups and residents associations to talk about crime prevention, and to give tips and advice on securing your home.
