Older persons services

Sheltered housing enables older people to keep their independence whilst providing security and peace of mind that help is on hand if needed. Our sheltered housing options include a range of individual easily managed properties. Helpline supports sheltered housing tenants when visiting officers are off duty.

Sheltered housing is available to those who are disabled or aged 60, or over 55 in some circumstances.

For those who need additional support, we have an Extra care scheme called The Cannons, which offers a range of flats and bungalows with security, independence and on-site care. There is also an option to have lunch time meals.

To apply for sheltered or extra care housing, information can be found on the Gateway to Homechoice website.

If you are already a Council tenant and are considering downsizing to a smaller property, you maybe eligible to apply under the Transfer incentive scheme to move.
