Sheltered housing

Get information about accommodation designed for older people.

Sheltered housing provides an option for those who wish to live in accommodation designed for older people. A wide variety of sheltered housing options are available for sale or rent. Most landlords require residents to be aged 60 or over, but this can vary.

Residents in sheltered housing live independently but are generally able to access a support service. This may be provided by a scheme manager, visiting service or a 24-hour alarm service. Arrangements vary from one scheme to another and there may be a charge for this service.

Your local district or borough council can advise on the rented sheltered housing options in your area.
