What is Safe & Well?

Safe & Well is an alarm response service that provides reassurance or assistance in an emergency at home.

Safe & Well operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year - ensuring help is always at hand at the touch of a button.

“The Safe & Well service is invaluable. It gives me the reassurance that I never need to feel alone as there is always a friendly voice at the touch of a button” Mrs P – Safe & Well Customer

How does it work?

By pressing a button on a pendant, customers can call through a 'lifeline' alarm unit to a trained operator at our local Control Centre, at any time of the day or night. 

The operator then takes the most appropriate action, whether it be contacting a family member, neighbour / key-holder or the emergency services.

The alarm unit works by connecting to the cellular network via a SIM card, just like a mobile phone.

Who is it for?

For anyone living within North West Leicestershire who would like to feel safer, more protected and more independent in their own home. It is especially beneficial for:

  • Older or disabled people
  • People who feel vulnerable due to their physical or mental health
