Sheltered Housing Tenants continue to receive alarm service in their home

Hampshire County Council has announced the withdrawal of funding for the alarm service in Winchester City Council Sheltered Housing schemes.

Winchester City Council will ensure tenants continue to receive this service and we will retain the Tunstall alarm equipment in their Sheltered homes which includes over 800 properties across the district.

To support this service we use an Alarm Monitoring Centre which operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This can be used by sheltered tenants and service users who are signed up to our Lifeline and Telecare service.

Should you require further information about any of our services, please contact us on 01962 856 488 or lifeline@winchester.gov.uk
