Affordable Housing for Older People
Are you aged over 55 and retired from work due to age or disability?
Are you looking for a safe, secure and affordable home for life?
If so, Colne's housing for older people could be the answer.
Our self-contained flats at various locations in north Essex enable residents to enjoy living independently for longer living. Each flat has a 24 hour emergency Careline.
More vulnerable residents can access 'hands on' support and we will signpost to other agenices who may be able to help.
Where could I live?
We have affordable housing for older people in Colchester, Clacton on Sea, Chelmsford, Heybridge, Tiptree, Brightlingsea and Manningtree.
How to apply
To apply, please complete an Application Form.
We assess applicants' support needs before offering housing.
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 accommodation for older people 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.
