GMNB provides a telephone support call alert service to the elderly and vulnerable adults. Service covers 7 days a week.

"The Good Morning North Belfast Service provides free telephone care support for vulnerable and older people".

The service acts as an alert when a member fails to answer their phone. When repeated calls go unanswered, the telephone carer will, where appropriate, liaise with service providers, (eg home help, social services), to try to locate our member and verify their safety.

Aim…

" To reduce the feelings of fear, vulnerability and isolation felt by older people, youth at risk, women and other vulnerable residents living in the North Belfast area".
