If you’re 60 or over First Contact gets you help from lots of organisations when you complete one simple checklist.
First Contact gets you advice on:
Home safety and security
Repairs, adaptations and specialist equipment
Energy saving improvements to keep you warm and reduce bills
Local activities and groups
Community transport schemes.
Fire prevention advice
Complete the checklist and you’ll be contacted by people who can help. They may offer a home visit, but will always contact you first (always ask for their ID).
The scheme is a partnership of key agencies and an organisation including the police, fire service, NHS, Borough councils, voluntary sector, and operates in a number of areas of Nottinghamshire including Gedling.
