Free blind cleat service

Angus residents have the opportunity to make their home a safer place for young children with the offer of free window blind cord cleats.

Angus Care and Repair has teamed up with the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA) to secure 3,000 cleats which are provided – and fitted – free of charge.

The cleats and fitting service is available across Angus to anyone who may have young children in their home.

Research by ROSPA reveals that there have been 26 deaths across the UK since 1999, with 13 deaths since 2010 involving window blind cords.

Most of these accidental deaths have happened in the bedroom with children between 16 months and three years old.
