About White Lion Alerts

White Lion Alerts provides solutions which enable people to live independently longer without compromising personal safety. White Lion Alerts’ systems are designed to provide a sense of freedom, confidence and safety.

Our Team

With over ninety years combined experience in the medical, social work and engineering fields, the three founding partners of White Lion Alerts have a deep understanding of the risks and issues associated with people aiming to live independently in their later years. They recognized the need for rigorous well thought out solutions. This experience and understanding has been used to select a group of products and services which overcome the significant shortfalls of many systems currently in the marketplace and provide optimum solutions for independent living. Our initial range of products is proudly sourced from Tunstall Healthcare.
