You have answered that you have let someone into your home and then regretted letting them in, but have not told anyone about this. Individuals can be at risk from both strangers and people they know. These may be relatives, friends, neighbours or paid carers.
Please do not ignore your concerns. If you are approached by an uninvited salesperson/fundraiser on the doorstep, get as much information about them by doing the following:
If there is an ongoing incident, or it has happened today, contact Police Scotland on 101. In an emergency, if fear, threats or duress are involved, call 999. You can also phone Crimestoppers anonymously 24 hours, seven days a week, on 0800 555 111.
Your answers have indicated that you have regretted letting someone into your home, e.g. someone claiming to be from a utility company or a pushy sales person.
If you have not already done so, you may wish to report this person to Trading Standards on 01236 856361 or email TradingStandards@northlan.gov.uk. In order to investigate this, they will need as much specific information as possible.
You may be interested to take up Strength and Balance Classes. You can attend your first class as soon as is convenient for you – there is no need to book in advance – just turn up. If the class detailed does not suit you, please call Melanie and you can slot into another class (01236 341709).
Please see the attached document for more information on locations and times.
The Lanarkshire Low Vision Project provides low vision aids to people with a visual impairment within Lanarkshire. Referrals are accepted from any source, including self-referral and assessments are carried out by named optical practices in each town.
You will be provided with advice and equipment, such as a magnifier to help with reading small print, if the optometrist thinks this will be helpful. A Rehabilitation Officer from North Lanarkshire Council's Health and Social Care can advise on how to make the best use of remaining vision using lighting, magnification and colour contrast.
If you would prefer to make your own arrangements, you can contact your local Social Work office to arrange an appointment.
