Real Help for People in Hard Times The Home Office is currently issuing discount vouchers under the banner 'Real Help for People in Hard Times'. The purpose of these vouchers is to allow members of the public to secure their homes and prevent themselves becoming the victims of a burglary. The Hampshire Constabulary will be issuing these vouchers to all burglary victims within the county but individual residents can also apply. To get the vouchers residents will need to contact the Home Office on 0800 456 1213 and request them. One pack will be issued per household. The vouchers can be used in B&Q and Focus DIY for items such as security lights and locks etc.
