Finding a home and applying for housing
Housing for older people aged 55 or over
As an older person, you have the same options as younger people (as detailed in the rest of this section). However, there are also some additional options open to you:
Older Persons' Housing Queue: Sheltered Housing and Extra Care Housing
Seaside and Country Homes Scheme - tenants aged 60 plus
This scheme helps existing council or housing association tenants move to the coast or countryside. You must be 60 years old or over, be capable of independent living and meet the eligibility criteria. Priority is usually given to tenants giving up a larger home.
To apply you can complete an online registration form.
