Sheltered housing

Sheltered housing is housing and support for older people or people with a disability. It is 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 will often feature communal areas, such as a lounge, kitchen or garden.
