As you get older you might want support with daily living -
without sacrificing your independence. We have lots of housing
options for older people:

manage a sheltered almshouse scheme in Blofield on behalf of the
Josiah and Mary Brewster Charity.
- Self-contained accommodation
- Vibrant community
- Regular social activities
- On-site scheme manager who you can call on for support
- 24-hour personal emergency alarm service.
Interested in applying?
You'll need to apply through the council's housing list. You can
also contact us directly on 01603 731666 as
we're occasionally able to make direct offers of accommodation.
Seaside and country
This scheme gives older people from London the opportunity to
move to an idyllic setting by the coast or in the heart of rural
England. You need to:
- Live in social housing in London
- Be 60 years old or over.
All seaside and country homes properties can be found on the Housing Moves website.
Leasehold schemes for
We manage 2 leasehold schemes for retired people. These are
homes for sale rather than rent. Our schemes are located in:
- New Costessey, near Norwich
- Hoveton in North Norfolk.
How does it work?
You buy the lease of the home at 70% of full-market value. Both
schemes have part-time caretakers, a 24-hour alarm system and a
full repairs service.
You pay a service charge based on the actual costs we incur.
You'll also pay into a fund that covers the cost of future major
works when you sell.

Adapting your current

adaptations such as fitting grab-rails can really help.
