Community Living Scheme

Making the move

As people get older they may start thinking about where they live and how they will be able to manage in their current home in the future.

One option is to consider a move into a Community Living Scheme which is available for people who may require some form of tenancy support, whilst maintaining their independence.

Why choose a Community Living Scheme ?

This is a type of housing available to people over 50 years of age, who want to live independently whilst having the added security of help and assistance available all day, every day.

Each scheme has a Manager, some of whom live on site and are there specifically for the needs of the residents. Each scheme has a communal area, where a wide range of events are run for the enjoyment of tenants.
