Sheltered housing is housing with support for older people or people with a disability. It’s usually managed by your district or borough council or a housing association.

Most sheltered housing consists of a block of flats or group of bungalows with an on-site manager or a 24 hour lifeline call service. It often includes communal areas, such as a lounge, kitchen or garden.

To be eligible, you may need to join your local district or borough housing register:
