The Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust

Charity description

The Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust logo
The Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust (WBVT) works in partnership with the Wiltshire Police to provide a home security service for older and vulnerable people throughout Wiltshire. The charity funds the operation of three Bobby vans that provide mobile workshops for Bobby operators. Our new team of Stay Safe Online Volunteers also offer advice on keeping safe online.

The Trust's core work is to secure homes of the most vulnerable within our community.  Our ‘Bobby’ operators carry out home security and fire risk assessments before fitting the appropriate hardware for each client.  This service and the equipment are provided free to all eligible clients (i.e. over 60s, disadvantaged due to a physical or mental disability or victims of domestic abuse).

The Trust strives to help people in Wiltshire and Swindon by:
  • Improving security of domestic premises occupied by the elderly and vulnerable to prevent burglary, hate crime and domestic abuse;
  • Reducing incidence of repeat burglary and re-victimisation;
  • Promoting awareness of fire safety, detection and prevention;
  • Offering reassurance and advice on crime reduction, and sign-posting other agencies that may be of assistance to clients’ particular needs; and,
  • Providing practical skills and advice to help prevent online fraud.
Please donate to support our cause.
