News: Free Locking Cooker Valves

Safety device to help a person living in a vulnerable situation retain their independence, and provide reassurance to family, friends and carers.

When you care for a vulnerable person, such as someone living with dementia or autism, you may need extra safeguarding in place. A locking cooker valve can help someone stay safe in their own home. The valve can easily be turned off and on and locked by the carer, enabling the person you care for to continue to use their gas cooker safely. When the valve is locked, the gas supply is isolated which means if the cooker is unintentionally turned on or left on when you are out of the room, there is no risk of gas escaping.
