   The Bobby Scheme    5 December, 2016

The Cambridgeshire Bobby Scheme is a local charity which provides a service to older or vulnerable people by improving home security to reduce crime and the fear of crime. The Bobby Scheme works with a number of partner agencies, including the Police, Fire Service, Local Authorities, Age UK and other charities.

The trained staff come out and fit a range of security devices to help people feel safe in their own homes. Devices such as window locks, door chains, personal attack alarms, window and door alarms etc. They also provide other security advice and reassurance. On average it costs the Bobby Scheme £130 to work at each home, so they do ask people to consider making a donation so that they can continue to provide such a great service. This is how the scheme works:

  • If you have been a victim of crime and you are over 60, you can receive a free visit.
  • If you are 65 and over or disabled and would like a visit from the Bobby Scheme to reduce your chance of becoming a victim, they ask for a contribution of £30.00 towards their costs.
  • Key safes supplied and fitted from £50.00 and £80.00.
  • Other specialist products are available to be purchased.

If you would like a visit from the Bobby Scheme, call 01480 413311 or 07866 602100, or visit their website.
