Free home security upgrades

If you live in Lambeth, you can apply for a free home security improvement thanks to £100,000 of funding from the Labour government.

The upgrades, which include window locks, door chains and spy holes are part of a programme run by the Clapham Park Project to tackle burglary in our community.

First call will be for older residents, those who are on low incomes and those living in burglary hotspots, but any resident can apply to have their home's security assessed.

Work will be carried out by Age UK, and anyone who feels their property needs additional security to help reduce the risk of burglary can apply by calling Clapham Park Project by 19 March on 0800 085 2378.
