LSH works closely with partner organisations to help raise awareness of health, safety and community issues that can affect students in Liverpool.

 

We want all students to be happy in their choice of private accommodation and feel welcomed in their local community. We have produced this handy Community Guide in collaboration with Liverpool Guild, JMSU and HopeSU, which gives lots of information about the local area, settling in and keeping safe.

We welcome all students to the local area and hope that you have a safe an enjoyable time. Liverpool is one of the safest cities in the country. Sadly, becoming a victim of crime could ruin your experience of the city. Please take care to look after your property and your housemates by taking the simple steps as outlined.

 

Your local neighbourhood Police team is here to help and support you, however if issues arise from your property we will deal with these through the Liverpool Anti Social Behaviour Unit and your University.

 

Finally can I ask that you consider your security and ask the question “If I was a thief, how easy would it be to get into my house?”

 

*  Don't leave valuables on display

 

* Upon entering your home, lock the door behind you

 

* Lock all doors and windows when you go out

 

*  When out, pay attention to your surroundings, travel together in the evening and use well lit paths

 

*Love your phone. Log it. Register your electronic property free of charge at  https://www.immobilise.com/index.php This website helps Police to identify the owners of lost & stolen property. Merseyside Police urges you to register all your electronic property on this website

 

Finally, you are joining a well-established community, please respect your neighbours and do not cause annoyance to other people by leaving rubbish outside your property or causing anti-social behaviour

GAS SAFETY


 

      Gas Safe Register is the official list of gas engineers who are qualified to

      work safely and legally on gas appliances.

 

 

Landlords must arrange for a Gas Safe registered engineer to carry out a gas safety check on gas appliances every 12 months and provide you with a copy of the landlord’s gas safety record.

 

To advertise with LSH, all landlords must supply a current gas safety certificate for every property.

 

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning - The Silent Killer - view the movie

Badly fitted and poorly serviced appliances can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas which can kill quickly with no warning.

 

Know the 6 main signs and symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning - don't mistake the symptoms for a hangover.

 

 

If you think a gas appliance is faulty turn it off and let your landlord know immediately. In an emergency call the gas emergency helpline on 0800 111 999.

If you feel unwell, seek medical help immediately.

The Homeshare service is run by KHT Homeshare, a local organisation based in Prescot. The scheme matches householders who are 55+ years of age who have a spare bedroom, with young peeople who need accommodation and are aged between 16-25 years. The service runs in a similar way to a befriending service, to create a mutual beneficial relationship between the householder and the homesharer.
