Applying for a Home

You are welcome to contact any of our Housing Schemes or Villages direct to enquire about applying for a home. You can pick up contact details through our locations page.

Guidance Application Criteria

Age: The opportunity to apply for a home is primarily available to those over the age of 55. There is no upper age limit.

Location: You will generally live within the same local authority boundary as your preferred housing scheme or village.

If you live further afield, you may also be considered if you have a connection with the local authority area. For example, if you are moving back to the area to live near a close family member.

Care: We welcome residents with and without care needs. Dependent on individual circumstances, we can support residents with significant assessed care needs, including dementia.

Financial Means: ExtraCare is a charity so we aim to ensure that living with us is affordable for all, even for those with limited financial means who are moving from a rental property and have only a minimum state pension.

These criteria are for guidance only and may vary between different housing Schemes and Villages. Detailed criteria will be made available to you as part of your application.
