MAVIS LEE, 73 lives in local authority housing and currently receives a pension and housing benefit.
As part of the `here to HELP' scheme she was put in touch with Help the Aged.
Through the charity she received specific support including a deadlock, door chain and spy hole.
Although Mavis's daughter lives nearby and visits her regularly, the products have given her that extra sense of security.
Previously the door lock was not very effective and the spy hole was very unclear.
Now that these security products have been installed, Mavis feels much more secure.
Mavis said: "here to HELP is an excellent scheme. I would encourage anyone to take advantage of it.
"Especially in the flats I live in there are quite a lot of older people and most of them will benefit from new locks and better security."
