Sheltered Housing

If you are over 55 and you wish to live independently but would like the added security of support staff, you may wish to consider applying for sheltered housing.

You can choose from a number of sheltered housing schemes across the city, which all provide modern facilities. All of our properties are fitted with an emergency alarm system which allows you to call for help, 24 hours a day.

If you would like to apply for sheltered housing, you need to fill in a HomeSearch application form.

You can also pick up an application form from any customer service centre or information point, or telephone 01482 300 300 and we can post one to you.

Assistance available to you

When you move into one of our sheltered housing schemes, we work with you to develop a support plan tailored to your individual needs. The support available includes -

  • a 24 hour emergency alarm service monitored through the Kingston Care Control Centre
  • a calling service based upon your needs
  • assistance to contact other services


The sheltered housing support charge varies according to the types of facilities provided at each scheme and this is in addition to the rent for accommodation.

If you receive housing benefit you will qualify for the grant to pay for this service.
