Free Trial

You will be entitled to a two week free trial, however after the trial period, we charge a small fee for our
service which is payable to the warden.A warden will provide you with daily contact giving you peace of mind and support for independent living, this can be ongoing or short term support depending upon what you need.

It is important to note that the warden is not a domestic, home help or a carer providing physical care.
The Community Warden is employed and paid by Age UK Cambridgeshire and Peterborough and must not undertake tasks for you on a private basis.
