Safety Begins at Home logo

Most injuries happen in the home and are easy to prevent, so Safe Hutt Valley partners have teamed up to offer free home safety checks to residents in the communities of Upper Hutt, Wainuiomata, Naenae, Taita and Stokes Valley.

A trained expert will visit you in your own home, and offer practical suggestions and resources to make your home safer, and minimise those nasty slips, trips and falls. The home safety checks also include useful information on crime prevention, emergency preparedness and health. To find out more, and book in for one of our free home safety checks, please contact nsgroup@xtra.co.nz if you live in Lower Hutt, or community@uhcc.govt.nz if you live in Upper Hutt.

You can also check out the ACC website for information on how to make your home a safer place for you and your family.
