About the Scheme

The Scheme is for the benefit of residents of East Sussex and Brighton & Hove. The Scheme itself is voluntary and operates entirely on the basis of individual consent from both members and their clients.

On receipt of our referral (with our customer’s permission) the East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service (ESFRS) will arrange a home safety visit to provide the occupier with fire safety advice tailored to their situation. They will also, where necessary, fit free smoke alarms.

ESFRS staff can also assess needs other than fire safety that may affect the occupier’s ability to live independently and, again, with the occupier’s permission, will in East Sussex contact County Connect to request further assistance where appropriate.

Using County Connect, we can action assistance with:
  • Home fire safety
  • Smoke alarms
  • Help with benefit claims, assistance with form filling and support throughout a claim.
  • Advice and practical assistance to overcome fuel poverty/heating difficulties, advice on affordable warmth.
  • Telecare and daily living assistance, with the help of current technology.
  • The Navigator Service – who help older people to live independently in their own home
  • Hygiene and welfare
  • General support needs
