NLC: Fourth charges for community alarms

25th January 2017

Shocking news today that North Lanarkshire Council has enforced the fourth highest charges for community alarms which are essential to keeping the most vulnerable people in our community safe.

NLC partially u-turned on their plans and removed charges for those in sheltered housing. However, people living at independently at home are those who need it most and they are still being forced to pay. Many have in fact withdrawn from the scheme.
