Many people think that home ownership is beyond their reach but there are a number of Low Cost Home Ownership (LCHO) schemes designed to help you buy a home of your own. These schemes make buying a home an affordable option as you need a smaller mortgage and a smaller deposit. In many cases it can be cheaper than renting a home privately. The Help to Buy website will give you lots of information.
- Find out more about our shared ownership or market sales properties we have available from our Grand Union Homes website.
Traditionally retirement housing has been seen as no more than blocks of flats or groups of properties with a home support officer providing support to residents, regardless of what the individual wants or needs. Our vision is to provide choice to our residents through a needs-led service that delivers support tailored to the individual. We aim to work flexibly to meet the changing circumstances of our residents. Find out more in our Independent Living section.
Accommodation for older people who require some personal care support but still wish to live independently rather than consider residential care or nursing care.
We provide high-quality, specialist housing services for adults with learning disabilities who need support; this service can meet each person’s individual needs, often in partnership with others.
Domestic Violence Refuge
Accommodation for people fleeing from domestic abuse. These are generally for women and children, although there are a few refuges for men around the country. The accommodation can vary from shared houses to self-contained units. More information regarding domestic violence.
If you are going to be homeless immediately or within the next 28 days you need to contact your Local Council and tell them you need to apply as homeless.
