What is doorstep security?
The vast majority of older people are safe when answering their front door and have nothing to fear from strangers who are calling for legitimate reasons. However, on rare occasions, some older people may be targeted for burglary and/or scams.
Doorstep security is about protecting yourself against people with criminal and abusive intentions, who call uninvited to the place where you live. With the right information, advice, resources and tools, you can help to protect yourself. In this way, you can live without fear, keep control of your home and maintain your social connections with your friends, neighbours and your community.
