Sheltered accommodation

housing__sheltered-accommodation

We have 36 sheltered schemes (1433 properties), helping older people to live independently. This housing is a mix of flats, bungalows, and one extra-care scheme.

All schemes benefit from communal lounges, where our sheltered scheme officers support a programme of activities to help tackle social isolation and encourage a sense of community.
