Bromley sheltered housing 

Location: UK » London » BR
Sector: Housing

Bromley Council plans to cut funding for sheltered housing, saving £500k in 2011/12 and £800k in 2012/13 from its £1.15m 2010/11 budget.

The council admits that sheltered housing is a ‘widespread and popular service’. Sheltered housing gives older people the opportunity to live an independent life in the community with some support. There are currently sheltered schemes throughout Bromley, operated by housing associations and consisting of groups of flats or houses/bungalows. In most schemes a home is rented from the association, but there are also leasehold schemes, where a home can be purchased. Some schemes offer communal facilities, such as laundries.
