Who is supported housing for?

Supported housing is designed for people who:

  • are of pensionable age
  • are nearing pensionable age and whose circumstances would benefit from the services offered within sheltered housing
  • are able to live independently but would benefit from the services provided by the scheme.

Tenants in sheltered housing do not have the right to buy, but otherwise do enjoy all the normal rights of a secure tenant.
