The multi-agency scheme enables people aged 60 and over to stay safe and independent in their own homes.

Awards were given to show appreciation to the partners involved in the scheme, who include police, the fire service, Social Services, the NHS, the Department for Work and Pensions, the voluntary sector and Mansfield District Council.
