Registered Charity No 1173790, The Trust provide a Courtesy Home Security Service for older, vulnerable and disadvantaged people in Swindon and Wiltshire, who have become, or are at risk of becoming victims of house crime or domestic abuse. Our Operators drive Police marked vehicles and dress as Police Support staff, their salaries, the security equipment we use and their vehicles are all funded by the Trust. Once we have been contacted, an appointment is made by the Bobby Van Administrator for an Operator to visit homes and conduct a full security survey and fire risk assessment. With the agreement of the client, appropriate devices are installed to secure the property. Time is spent offering reassurance to clients and advice is given on how to protect against house crime. Often the fear of crime is as damaging as the crime itself. We offer talks to community groups and clubs in a pro-active approach to securing homes for all over 60s or those vulnerable due to a disability. If you know someone in your community who would benefit from a visit please call to arrange a visit.
