I have received information about a Sheffield-based charity called People Against Crime. It is part-funded by Yorkshire and Humber Police Forces and the European Union. It provides free crime prevention surveys to Faith and Heritage sites including churches. The reports take the form of a written assessment with recommendations about the security of the building and how it can be improved. This is particularly relevant to lead theft from the roof.
Recommendations are cost-effective and suitable for the site surveyed. There is no cost for the service. You can read about the partnership on their website. Contact my office if you would like more details about how to get in touch with the local representative.
