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 including Gedling.
