What is Cotswold Careline?

Cotswold Careline is a 24 hour emergency monitoring service run by the Forest of Dean District Council.

With round the clock access to a trained operator, Cotswold Careline provides peace of mind for you and your loved ones, while maintaining independence and quality of life if you:

  • are in need of assistance recovering from illness or injury
  • are living or working alone, in an isolated area
  • are a victim of crime or domestic abuse
  • simply want reassurance to feel safe and confident in your own home

How does it work?

An alarm unit is plugged into your telephone socket, which links to a personal pendant that can be worn around your neck, wrist or clipped to clothing. When the button is pressed:

  • a call is triggered to our monitoring centre
  • trained personnel will reassure and assess the situation
  • make a call to one of your nominated contacts or the emergency services if necessary
  • help will be on its way to you

What does it cost?

The cost for the rental of equipment and monitoring service is just £4.48* per week, which includes:

  • rental of alarm unit
  • personal button
  • 24-hour monitoring service and unit maintenance
