What is sheltered housing?

Sheltered housing is a group of homes that offers support and share some communal facilities such has a laundry and community room.

The accommodation is suitable for people aged 55 and over or who are vulnerable and this enables our tenants to live safely and independently.

Each scheme is different but all have the following to support you in your home:

• Safe and well checks by our friendly professional staff

• Community alarm

• Communal space where residents can meet and socialise

• Programme of events and activities taking place in the communal lounges for all to attend

Sheltered housing is usually a one-bedroomed bungalow or bedsits but there are also some two-bedroomed.  Each property normally has its own lounge, kitchen and bathroom and the schemes have laundries for all to use if you wish.
