What does it do?

Lifeline is a telephone based system which you can use to summon help, call assistance, or give you reassurance, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

The Control Centre

The Control Centre fills many other roles, such as, ‘crime prevention', ‘aversion of crisis', ‘general information provider' and a ‘link with other statutory and voluntary services' for our customers.  

Connect a Lifeline to your telephone line and let us be a safeguard in your life. Whenever you need to summon help in an emergency or reassurance. We are here to help around the clock, day and night.

Call 01926 339577 and the person you call will arrange for a Mobile Liaison Officer to call you back and make a firm appointment with you at a date and time that suits you.
