Residents do not pay rent, but instead pay a Weekly Maintenance Contribution to cover overheads including the provision of central heating, maintaining the gardens, outside communal lighting and administration of the Emergency Call System. Residents are directly responsible for payment of their own utility accounts (water & electricity) and personal bills such as Council Tax and home contents insurance.

Eligibility Criteria

Applications are invited from women (over 50) and men (over 55) of limited financial means who meet our residency requirements, who are capable of independent living and are able to demonstrate a housing need to the satisfaction of the Board of Trustees. Appointments are at the sole discretion of the Trustees.
