The Manor Trust Bedhampton is a Registered Charity that serves to provide accommodation for the elderly and preserve the heritage of the village. The organisation also runs a wide range of activities throughout the year run by volunteers and supporters of the charity.
The Trust offers two very different residences. The Elms is an historic Grade II ‘star’ listed 17th Century building that provides self-contained retirement apartments. The Lodge, acquired in 1981, is a registered residential care home that provides permanent and short stay accommodation.
- Fire risk assessment
- Fire safety training
- Fire warden training
- Fire extinguisher training
Benfield Fire Safety has undertaken fire risk assessments in both buildings and delivers regular fire safety training with staff. We have consulted with the Trust on fire safety matters such as compartmentation, fire alarms upgrades and improvements to fire doors. Benfield Fire Safety provides the fire risk assessments via an electronic system which is updated and accessible any time, which the Trust has found useful.
Extremely helpful and knowledgeable
“Jason is extremely helpful and knowledgeable; he understands the challenges associated with fire safety in a Grade II ‘star’ listed building. He is very diligent about ensuring we’re compliant with fire safety regulations. Jason is firm but fair and addresses all issues with solutions. He explains his thinking well and doesn’t just tell us what we need to do; he also explains why, and this enables us to have confidence in him.
“The fire safety training is excellent, and our staff are always fully engaged in the learning process.”
