Community Alarm Responders

  • VO62025


Description

Alarm responders are a vital lifeline for people across Moray who do not have family, friends or neighbours close by to check on their well-being if the alarm is pressed. Volunteers attend to call outs and remain with the person until help arrives if required. This volunteer service is very much about remaining calm and providing reassurance. We currently support 50 volunteer alarm responders. Please check out website www.moray.gov.uk/volunteering orcontact us by email on volunteering.CC@moray.go.uk
