*Broxtowe Borough Council - Lifeline Service

Lifeline referrals are now able to be taken again.  It may take slightly longer than usual to respond and arrange appointments, due to a backlog as a result of Covid-19, and we thank you for your patience as we work through these.

If you’d like peace of mind, you can purchase our Lifeline Service by contacting our Dedicated Lifeline Co-ordinator:


What is Lifeline?

Lifeline provides round the clock support through a unit which plugs into your telephone socket. It also includes a discreet alarm which you can wear either as a pendant or wristband.

The Lifeline unit is linked to an accredited Control Centre who you can contact 24 hours a day, 7 days a week if you need assistance by simply pushing the button on the unit or your pendant.

If you wish to have a Lifeline unit, our dedicated Lifeline Co-ordinator will visit you to arrange the installation and explain how it works. It will take about an hour to install the unit.
