The project reviewed two areas of NFRS prevention activities in order to understand the benefits of their activities to communities and the value of their investment. These were the assessment of the costs and benefits of Safe and Well Visits (SWVs) and the use of the CHARLIE profile in identifying those who are most at risk of death or serious injury from fire.

HMICFRS believe that individual services have taken the SWVs forward in their own way, and there is too much variation between services with some needing to target their prevention work better. They consider that understanding the impacts, costs, and benefits of the SWV model and further evaluation of the effectiveness of SWVs is essential to accurately capture their main benefits.

Two background working papers have been produced prior to this final report.
