Thrive Homes sheltered housing 

Location: UK » London » WD
Sector: Social care

Hertfordshire County Council has cut its grant to Thrive Homes, which owns and runs eight sheltered housing schemes for the elderly in Watford, Rickmansworth, Abbots Langley and South Oxhey, by 56 percent, leaving the housing association trying to work out how it can provide the same level of service to its elderly residents with significantly less money.

A large portion of Thrive Homes’ budget for providing services to these sheltered housing residents - such as dedicated service managers and daily contact - comes from Hertfordshire County Council under the Supporting People Grant.
