Available Group and Independent living housing

Applying for Sheltered or Group Housing

‘’The small cosy space is much easier for me and I can still live independently. It was a huge weight lifted off my shoulders, I wish I’d done it years ago’’. 

Does this sound like something you will be saying once you move? If you are 60 and over or under with a need for the service with low to medium levels of assistance, don’t leave it years, when we have homes available now in our independent living! 

Applications for independent living or grouped housing can be made by calling 01522 873 777 or emailing housingsolutions@lincoln.gov.uk

Cost of the service

The total rent that tenants pay includes the following breakdown of charges;

  • Rent for accommodation
  • Charges for support; charged at around 10% of the accommodation rent 

Please note that all supported housing clients hold tenancies subject to our standard terms and conditions; therefore, they have the same rights as other tenants and are expected to live reasonably independently.

In addition we do not provide personal care or home care services directly, however, with the consent from the tenant, our staff will help with the arrangement of care services through other agencies and carers.
