If you provide unpaid care or support to someone who lives in Islington, this scheme will give you peace of mind that, should something happen to you or you have an emergency, the person you care for will not be forgotten. When a call is made the council arranges support in your home, either with one of the people you nominate when you register, or, if they are not available, through social services. This care is free for up to 72 hours if it is provided in your home.
