To apply, please complete an Application Form.
We assess applicants support needs before offering sheltered retirement housing.
We also manage sheltered accommodation owned by Witham Housing Association. Please visit their website for more information.
How long will it take before I am housed?
We regret that we cannot give any guarantees about how long it might take to be housed or whether we will be able to offer you housing at all.
We can only offer between 25% and 50% of available sheltered accommodation to our applicants on our direct waiting list. The remainder are offered to the local authority's housing register.
If you have not done so already, we would suggest you contact your local authority to discuss all your housing options.
Oasis cafe at Ironside Walk
We have three bungalow schemes especially for older people. Unfortunately, we are not accepting any new applications for these at the moment due to overwhelming demand. Any changes to this decision will be announced on our website.
