Wirral’s Healthy Homes team supports tenants and homeowners to help them stay independent, healthy and safe in their homes. They offer free advice and services relating to a range of health and housing issues.

Healthy Homes Advocates are calling at every property in selective licensing areas, to carry out a short questionnaire to see if you can benefit from any of the free services available.

Wirral Council’s Healthy Homes team all wear a uniform and carry identification. If you have any doubts email Wirral Council’s Housing Standards at selectivelicensing@wirral.gov.uk
