Free Community Safety Equipment
December 2023 update: Last chance for East Marsh residents to get free items of household or personal safety equipment!
This project was funded through Safer Streets East Marsh to provide East Marsh residents with small items that can help with household safety and to improve peace of mind. The programme ended August 2023 but VANEL are still able to provide items to residents until our stock runs out. Find out more here or use the online request form here. Unlikely to be much left by the end of 2023, so make your request now!
