Get your upgrades

Just use one of the options below to tell us that you would like to upgrade your home, and provide your contact details. A Safer Streets team member will contact you and help you to complete a quick no-obligation survey.

All you (or if you are renting, the homeowner) will need to do afterwards is agree to have the recommended security works carried out by our approved contractor. All the costs will be met by Safer Streets! Covid-19 safety controls are in place for all Safer Streets work.

If you are a Redditch Borough Council tenant, please be advised that as your landlord we do intend to upgrade your home under this scheme.

Don't miss out

We have been given a strict time limit to complete the project, so please get in touch with us as soon as possible to ensure you get your free upgrades. Don’t miss out!

The Home Office has given us, through the West Mercia Police & Crime Commissioner, £430,000 of ‘Safer Streets’ funding to increase the security of homes in this target area of Woodrow. We're now working with West Mercia Police to ensure as many residents benefit from the funding as possible, which is what our Safer Streets project team is for.

Don’t get scammed

Always check the identity of anyone who calls at your home or wants your details. If you are unsure, ask for their company’s verifiable head office number and confirm their identity yourself before opening the door. Everyone in the Safer Streets team carries official ID and will be very happy to wait while you confirm their identity with us or the police.

...and give cold callers the cold shoulder

Did you know our Nominated Neighbour scheme enables callers and visitors to be directed to a nominated, trusted neighbour to confirm their identity? Here's more information about the Nominated Neighbour scheme from the North Worcestershire Community Safety Partnership.
