Vulnerable and older people who want security and peace of mind can get a free emergency alarm.

Richmond Council is offering a free six month trial of telecare systems, which when activated automatically generate an emergency call so people can get help immediately in their home.

The sensors can be worn as a necklace or wristband and with the push of a button will dial the Richmond Careline team via the main phone line.

The council announced £100,000 of funding to provide the trial in November last year. Residents need to apply by March 31.
