Safety Equipment for North Cleethorpes

Small items of personal or household safety equipment are available for free to households in North Cleethorpes (conditions apply)

Residents in the North Cleethorpes area can now request small items of personal or household safety equipment from Big Local North Cleethorpes.

The items available in this equipment ‘cache’ include things like personal alarms; stick on window alarms; timer switches (have your lights come on when you are out); and more.

These are offered as part of Big Local North Cleethorpes’s Older People theme and our work alongside VANEL and partners on the Keeping Older People Safe (KOPS) initiative.

Read on to find out about the equipment or how to make a request or a referral.


Do you live in postcodes DN35 7.. or DN35 8… ?

Unfortunately our funding is limited. We therefore have to assess applications for equipment and decide what to provide to which households.

So firstly, households and residents need to live in the Big Local North Cleethorpes area of benefit.  This is largely the Sidney Sussex and Croft Baker wards of Cleethorpes.  If your postcode is DN35 7.. or DN35 8.. then you will be eligible.

We will also need to prioritise equipment.  We’re first aiming to support older more vulnerable people and secondly, families with young children who may be more vulnerable.  Anyone living in the postcodes can apply, but we may delay deliveries to those not meeting our key priorities so that equipment can be best provided.

The Equipment

The equipment we provide is small and does not require installation.  Please note that we don’t provide installation services, nor can we provide larger items such as CCTV or lighting systems etc.

Current equipment options can be found on the catalogue here:

Orders and Referrals

You can make a request for yourself or your family or household on the order form below.

If you are an organisation or agency looking to refer a resident or household in the area, please use the same form or get in contact.

You can order more than one item, but please only request what you really need so that we can make the funding and the equipment reach more households.  We retain the right to choose what we can provide to each household.

Download the ORDER FORM here.

We now have a new, online order form. Use it alongside the catalogue of items to make your request or referral.

Thank you
