Supported and sheltered housing
There are various schemes available to people who wish to live independently but require some level of support. Please see the West Sussex County Council website for further details or contact Stonham, one of the largest providers of housing, care and support services in England.
Other forms of supported housing are also available in the district. For example, housing for adults and children with learning difficulties or physical disabilities. Southdown Housing Association can provide further information about accommodation for those with learning and mental health difficulties.
Sheltered housing provides accommodation with support for the over 60s. Usually this could mean such things as a daily call to check everything is okay, communal facilities or midday meals. There is a charge for these services, which is separate from the rent to pay.
In order to be considered for sheltered housing, you must join the Chichester Housing Partnership Register. Please print off, fill in and post the application form or send it by email.
