Applying to live in a sheltered scheme
Homes within our sheltered schemes are allocated on age, medical need, Property Pool Plus banding, and demand. To apply to live in any of our properties you must have an active Property Pool Plus account. If you have trouble accessing the internet, our Neighbourhood Allocations Team can support you. The team will help you set up your account, assess your housing needs, and help you bid on suitable properties which match your requirements.
