Leading Charity Warns Against the Risk of Unregistered Appliances

Householders who own unregistered appliances could be putting themselves and their loved ones at risk of serious injury and death, warns leading accident prevention charity, the Royal Society of Accident Prevention and the Association of Manufacturers of Domestic Appliances.

The alert comes during Register My Appliance Week which runs from the 23rd to the 27th of January. By registering a domestic appliance with the manufacturer, people can be informed of any recalls or safety issues as quickly as possible and reduce the risk of tragic incidents like fires and explosions.

To register your device, visit www.registermyappliance.org.uk.

Ashleigh Martin, Public Health Advisor at the Royal Society of the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA):

“With such busy lives, it’s only natural not to have domestic safety at the top of our to-do lists. But a simple action like registering your appliance as soon as you’ve purchased it can help prevent against unnecessary tragedies. By registering your appliances in a timely manner, you can be among the first to hear when there is a potentially life-saving product recall.”

AMDEA CEO Paul Hide, said: “We urge anyone with unregistered appliances – whether brand-new, a pre-used buy or installed a while ago – to register all their appliances so they can be contacted in case of any safety notifications, repairs or recalls. Most manufacturers accept registrations of machines up to 12 years old, and there’s no need for proof of purchase. It’s completely free and easy to do – it’s a win-win for keeping your home safe and possibly increasing the life span of your machine.”

Support Dogs – Looking for Volunteers

Could you look after a life-saving assistance dog of the future?

Sheffield-based national charity “Support Dogs” is urgently looking for volunteers to look after its puppies and young dogs before and during their training.

Sam, who has autism, with his life-changing assistance dog, Willow.

“Support Dogs”, whose training centre is in Brightside, trains assistance dogs for children with autism and adults with epilepsy and a range of serious medical conditions, enabling them to lead safer, more independent lives.

Janet Dyson with Frank

None of its puppies or dogs-in-training ever spends a night in kennels but stay with local dog-loving families in and around Sheffield. Due to high demands for its services, which are provided free of charge, the charity now needs more people to volunteer as puppy socialisers – who look after pups aged between eight weeks and 15 months – and foster carers – who look after young dogs in training, in the evenings and at weekends. Lots of support is provided, including holiday cover, and regular puppy classes.

If you’d like to find out more go to http://www.supportdogs.org.uk/volunteer or contact Support Dogs on 0114 2617800 or info@supportdogs.org.uk
