The Bobby Scheme

Helping older and vulnerable people feel safer in their own homes

What does it do?

The Bobby Scheme secures homes of victims aged 60 and over, domestic abuse victims and people who feel at risk who are aged 65 and over or disabled residents.

Our Bobbies not only fit security equipment to the homes of the elderly but also give safety advice which helps victims feel safe in their own homes again. We offer the same service to non-victims for a small donation.  

Who it is for?

Older, vulnerable and disabled people

Where it is available?

Local service (East Cambridgeshire, Fenland, Huntingdonshire, Cambridge, Peterborough, South Cambridgeshire).

Additional information:

Over the last 15 years we have secured over 24,000 homes. Our repeat victimisation rate is still less than 1%. This means vulnerable people are safer in their own homes and we reduce the fear of crime. By helping elderly people remain independent longer we reduce the cost of care and nursing home facilities.
Since October 2012 when we started to support victims of domestic abuse we have secured over 860 homes helping them to feel safe and allowing them and their children to remain in their own homes rather than go into refuge.
