Description

Home-Start Central Lancashire is a local community network of trained volunteers and expert support helping families with young children through their challenging times. We are there for parents and children when they need us the most because we know that childhood can’t wait.

Home-Start works with families in communities right across Central Lancashire. Starting in the home, our approach is as individual as the people we’re helping. No judgement, it is just compassionate, confidential help and expert support.

Families struggling with post-natal depression, early childhood development, isolation, challenging behaviour, physical and mental health problems, bereavement and many other issues receive the support of a volunteer who will spend around three hours a week in a family’s home supporting them in the ways they need.

Home-Start Central Lancashire also provides up to date training for volunteers and parents, supports families practically and emotionally to increase their capacity to cope with and enjoy life events such as Christmas and school holidays, and helps families to access and engage with other agencies and support.

Description

At Progress Lifeline, we provide a range of telecare sensors that can be installed in homes to protect those who live alone or are vulnerable in any way. Our products are designed to sense danger in the home or vulnerability to falls and identify the need for assistance. These sensors are all linked to our 24/7 Alarm Receiving Centre where our extremely friendly and helpful team will check you are safe and call the appropriate help if needed.

We also provide an Emergency Response Service. The emergency responders are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to visit you if you are in need, or if we cannot confirm you are safe following an activation. Our responders will get to you within 60 minutes, although our average is normally 35 minutes.

Progress Lifeline can also monitor people outside of the home with our GPS device which can be worn as a pendant or a key-fob. The GPS device, named The Footprint can provide extra reassurance inside and outside the home or if a person does not have a telephone line they can use this for connection to our Alarm Receiving Centre.

Offices are open Monday to Friday 9-5pm

Alarm Receiving Centre is open 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
