Home and Personal Security and Safety Products

At our regular Advice Shops, we also sell a number of home security and safety products to members on a not-for-profit basis. We can also refer you to a number of support services.

Some products are supplied free to everyone, others are free only to members and the rest we sell on a not-for-profit basis.

That means we sell them at the same price we buy them for - the idea is not to make money, but use our ability to buy in bulk to make it cheaper for you to secure your property and protect yourself.

Postcode engraving for bicycles, lawnmowers, etc

FREE for everyone

We offer property marking with invisible UV pens or an engraver - for bicycles, power tools, lawnmowers and similar items. Postcoding your property discourages burglars and increases the chances of your property being returned if it is stolen. It can also provide vital evidence for the Police to be able to charge a suspected thief.
