This month’s #TORCTopTipsforTenants is on the critical issue of child safety in the home. This subject was highlighted by our Repairs team at Derwent who noticed that some households did not have safety devices installed with their new blinds despite, having young children in the home.

To avoid this, follow the safety guidelines highlighted below and check out the tips and helpful video on the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission website in collaboration with the HSE.
