SAFETY EQUIPMENT LOAN SCHEME

 

This service is open to all families living within East Lothian with a child under the age of 5 or with special needs.  Initial referrals for equipment must come through an approved agent, with a wide range of equipment being available for loan.

 

Our referral agents include:

 

  • Health Visitors

  • Social Workers

  • Women's Aid

  • Other Voluntary Organisaitons

 

 

After a family has been referred for equipment on loan from us they can then self refer and come back and ask for additional items, depending on the age and stage of their childs' development.


All equipment loaned is for an initial period of 3 months after which time a follow up visit/safety check will take place.  Once a family has finished using the equipment we ask that it is returned to us in good condition along with all relevant fixtures and fittings.  The equipment is loaned free of charge with a delivery charge of £5.00 payable.

 

A free safety pack is given to all families referred to us.  This contains a variety of information leaflets alson with samples of corner cushions, cupboard catches and a door jammer.

 

All equipment loaned meets all relevant safety requirements and is suitable for the age and stage of their childs' development.
