An emergency situation

In an emergency phone the emergency helpline which is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The helpline will get in touch with the family members or friends you have nominated or if you were unable to nominate anyone, a support worker will be provided to support the person that you care for.

The service will be provided for up to 48 hours. If you need ongoing support the scheme will help in making other arrangements.
