Sheltered housing

We look after 27 sheltered housing schemes throughout Peterborough.

Find out more about the schemes and where they are located.

Sheltered housingOur sheltered housing includes bungalows, flats and bedsits that cater for the needs of people of retirement age.

The homes are self-contained, which means you can live as independently as you want to. But they also offer extra shared facilities, such as common rooms, so you can join in social activities and get to know your neighbours.

All homes are linked to the Lifeline service via a pull cord alarm. This means that in the event of an emergency, you can make contact with someone 24-hours a day who can call the emergency services or get in touch with members of your family.

All sheltered housing schemes benefit from a scheme manager who can:

  • Help to assess any support needs you may have and make arrangements for these needs to be met - for example by making contact with social services
  • Keep a check on your welfare
  • An independent living coordinator who can help you to access a range of activities and to find out about events and happenings in your area.
