The Independent Living Service provide a response and monitoring service to approximately 1700 WHC designated sheltered housing properties and 700 community Lifeline clients living within the borough. Approximately 2/3 are owner occupiers and 1/3 are Council properties.

The 1700 sheltered housing properties connect via a hard wired system installed in the property and receive support via scheme coordinators on site and mobile wardens, providing a 24 x 7 service. The units require an active landline and electrical socket in order to operate and successfully connect to the control centre. The hard wired units also connect to pull cords in each room.

There is a programme to remove the existing units which will be replaced by new units supplied through this procurement.

The Council requires 2400 units to be delivered over a 5 year period.The new units need to be delivered to one location in Welwyn Garden City and the onward delivery will be managed by Council staff.
