Sheltered housing

Extra care housing

Extra care housing is designed for people over the age of 55 with care needs, who are able to live independently but require the reassurance of 24-hour support.

We currently have three extra care housing schemes in Southwark, offering 24-hour support, practical and personal care, leisure and recreation facilities, and a safe environment for residents.

If you think that you might need extra care housing, a social worker will carry out an Outcome based assessment to work out what your needs are and if this is the right type of housing for you.

A panel of social care and housing representatives will then make a decision about whether you are accepted for extra care housing.
