The team provide education, information, advice and guidance to empower residents of Northumberland to keep themselves safe and well. 

Home Fire Safety Check 


This easy-to-follow home fire safety check has been developed through a partnership between the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC), Fire Kills and Safelincs. It will take you through your home one room at a time and the simple questions will help you spot fire risks as you go around your home.

The tool will offer tips and advice on the steps you can take to reduce those risks. At the end, you will receive a personalised fire safety action plan to help keep you and your household safe from fire.

Safe and Wellbeing Visits 


Our safe and wellbeing visit programme is how we work with the most at risk residents referred to us to identify risks in the home.  During our visit, we will look out for risks in your home, not just relating to fire, but also other factors that might affect your health and wellbeing.
