Staying Put, Staying Safe Scheme

The "Staying Put, Staying Safe" scheme is for people at risk of homelessness because of domestic violence. Under the scheme the council will install a number of measures to secure your home and improve your personal security.

The scheme is voluntary and open to; council tenants, private sector tenants (landlords' consent is required to fit additional security), owner-occupiers and housing association tenants.

The service can offer:

•a simple change of lock
•fitting of a heavy-duty door; and
•a safe room.
You can approach the scheme directly through the Homeless Persons' Unit, the Housing Advice Centre or be referred by a support agency, such as the police or Wandsworth Women's Aid. Your individual needs will then be assessed by experienced staff.
