Sheltered schemes

A sheltered apartment offers independent living in an easy-to-manage home with the companionship of other older people living close by.

It's the perfect blend of independent living with support when you need it. You’ll need to be over-55 to qualify. If you have a long-term illness or disability we can consider you if you’re a little younger. image: Sheltered logo

You’ll find our sheltered schemes across London, the Midlands, Kent and Sussex, where we’re rated ‘outstanding’.

Our sheltered schemes offer one- or two-bed self-contained apartments, each with their own kitchen, bathroom and front door. Many have balconies or patio space, with shared gardens and are accessible throughout. The majority also have guest rooms for family or friends.

We run regular social activities – our aim is to promote active, healthy lifestyles, but it’s up to you how much you want to get involved. Our friendly schemes also offer a safe and secure environment.  Our staff are  there during set hours each week.  And we also provide 24-hour emergency assistance through a call system, so there's always someone available for support.

  • Make you feel welcome
  • Keep in touch every day - if you want us to
  • Look after the scheme and promote social activities
  • Support you if you need help with forms and paperwork
  • Help you get advice when you need it.

** Coronavirus update **

Date: 15 June 2021

Scheme Managers are increasing the amount of days per week working from our schemes.

If you would like to arrange an appointment to meet your Scheme Manager, we're advising residents to contact us by telephone. If your Scheme Manager is working from your scheme on the day you wish to make an appointment, you must still contact us by telephone as this helps us to limit contact for your's and our staff's safety.

To ensure the safety of our residents and staff we do ask that you continue to wear a face covering around the scheme.

The lounge and communal areas at our schemes are currently only open for organised events for up to 6 people. If you would like to attend one of our organised events, please contact your scheme manager for more information.

Due to limited capacity our guest rooms will remain closed until further notice. 

Remember your Independent Living Team is only a phone call away. If you're worried about anything please get in touch.
