To stay safe in your home, you must check the identity of all callers before you let them in. Our staff carry identity cards with photographs that they should show you, as should representatives from other organisations such as gas and electricity companies and the local council.

If you are suspicious of any person who calls at your home, do not let them in and call the Police or the organisation that they claim to represent.
