Sheltered housing

Sheltered housing offers the peace of mind in knowing that support is available 24 hours a day, with an alarm system that can be activated from the rooms in your flat and from the communal areas.

Sheltered housing facilities

All of our sheltered housing facilities are self-contained and unfurnished, so you will need to supply furniture and appliances. If you are moving from a family home and have lots of furniture you may not be able to take it all with you. Your housing officer may be able to provide information about organisations that collect unwanted furniture.

All our properties include:

  • heating
  • a kitchen – you will need to supply your own electric cooker and any other appliances
  • a bedroom or bed-sitting room
  • a bathroom
  • secure door entry systems to give you peace of mind that only tenants, staff and invited visitors, can get into your scheme
  • a laundry room with clothes drying facilities
  • a fully furnished communal lounge with kitchen

Most schemes have

  • lift access to all floors
  • communal gardens stocked with shrubs and lawns that are regularly cut and seating to enable you to relax out of doors
  • limited parking

Some schemes also have scooter storage and charging points.

Please note that ground floor properties are not always available, so you must be confident to use a lift to access properties.
