Emergency alarm services

WATCH Lifeline and Telecare

Watch lifeline

WATCH lifeline is an emergency home response alarm service for older people and younger disabled residents provided by Wandsworth Council.

It operates 24 hours a day, every day of the year. So you can be reassured that help is at hand at the touch of a button.


Telecare can help to manage risks surrounding falls, wandering, fire, flood, carbon monoxide and gas. It consists of a range of sensors which, when activated, will send an alert to the 24-hour WATCH Lifeline Control Centre.

One of the Emergency Response Officers will then contact designated family carers and emergency services if necessary. Telecare can help to support carers, improve people's safety and independence at home.
