Free Locking Cooker Values


Across South Yorkshire

Who we are

Free lockable safety device (locking cooker valve) to stop gas supply to gas cookers for vulnerable people.


We can fit a lockable safety device (locking cooker valve) to the pipework of a gas cooker or hob – this service is free of charge and is installed by one of our own engineers. This simple safety device will help a person living in a vulnerable situation retain their independence, and provide reassurance to family, friends and carers.

When you care for a vulnerable person, such as someone living with dementia or autism, you may need extra safeguarding in place. A locking cooker valve can help someone stay safe in their own home. The valve can easily be turned off and on and locked by the carer, enabling the person you care for to continue to use their gas cooker safely. When the valve is locked, the gas supply is isolated which means if the cooker is unintentionally turned on or left on when you are out of the room, there is no risk of gas escaping.

If you are a carer or health service provider and know someone who could benefit from this free service, please visit our website to complete our online form or contact us directly. We will arrange a home visit to fit the device. A carer or relative will need to be there when we visit, to agree the valve's position. If the property is rented you will need to seek the permission of the landlord to have the work done. With your help, we can provide a locking cooker valve to vulnerable people in our communities across the UK.
