Hot Spots

The Hot Spots scheme is now administered by the registered charity Refurnish. To register for the new referral system please see the link below.

A single referral through Hot Spots can provide access to:

  • a home safety check which may include the supply and installation of free smoke alarms.
  • a benefits entitlement check for vulnerable residents unable to refer themselves directly.
  • NHS Stop Smoking Service for advice and support to quit smoking and improve your health.
  • advice to keep your home warmer and save energy, plus information on grants for energy saving improvements such as insulation.
  • a referral for information on community care alarms, which give 24 hour support to help vulnerable people live independently.
  • Refurnish handyman service
  • Macmillan trust

The new referral system is predominantly web based and for you to be able to continue with your hot spots referrals you must first register on line.
