SSCR Sprinklers

In line with our Sprinkler Position statement, we are committed to protecting vulnerable members of the community.  We have set aside £1m from the Stronger Safer Communities Reserve to help towards the costs of installing fire suppression systems in buildings housing high-risk residents.

Following the Think Sprinkler event in January 2017, applications were invited from the following housing providers:

  • Local Authorities, Housing Associations and Charities (and such non-profit organisations)
  • Housing providers with residents considered to be at higher risk will be given priority access to the fund.  Factors that may indicate premises could be considered high risk include:
    • accommodation for vulnerable adults e.g. asylum seekers, substance misuse
    • accommodation for vulnerable children
    • residents with impaired mobility
    • high-rise premises

A match–funded element will be applied to all applications; SYFR will fund a minimum of 50%, with the aim of maximising the fund available.
