First Contact Signposting Scheme
If you’re 60 or over First Contact gets you help from lots of organisations when you complete one simple checklist.
First Contact gets you advice on:-
- Preventing falls
- Home safety and security
- Repairs, adaptations and specialist equipment
- Energy saving improvements to keep you warm and reduce bills
- Housing advice
- Claiming benefits
- Local activities and groups
- Community transport schemes.
- Fire prevention advice
Complete the checklist and you’ll be contacted by people who can help. They may offer a home visit, but will always contact you first (always ask for their ID).
The scheme is a partnership of key agencies and organisations including the police, fire service, NHS, Borough councils, voluntary sector, and operates in a number of areas of Nottinghamshire.
