Sheltered housing

We manage 14 sheltered housing schemes across the city, enabling people to live as independently as possible in a safe community setting.

Sheltered housing accommodation is available to council tenants, non-council tenants and housing association tenants.

All homes are fitted with a 24-7 emergency alarm system. Sheltered housing officers who work across all the units can offer a needs assessment and can offer a daily check facility if necessary.

Who can apply for sheltered housing?

To apply for sheltered housing you must be aged 50 or over, but preference is normally given to people aged 60 and over. Properties are offered in the same way as all other council properties - using the HomeChoice scheme. Before you apply please see the section below:
