Living independently: repairs and adaptations
There are a range of housing choices for older and disabled people in the borough and we are committed to meeting your needs.
If you would like to move, you may want to consider the following options:
- Housing for older people aged 55 or over including sheltered housing and extra care housing
- Applying for council or housing association homes
- Transferring/downsizing or relocating through one of our mobility schemes, such as Room to Move, including financial and other reasons to move to a smaller property
- Private renting
- Buying a home
- Home sharing through schemes like Homeshare UK
Or you might want to make changes so you can stay in your own home.
Staying in your own home
Your home should be somewhere you feel both safe and comfortable.
If you are an adult experiencing abuse or worried about an adult suffering from abuse you can get help from social services.
