If you have capital, you will not automatically be excluded from applying for an apartment. Exceptions may be made if your care or support needs can not be met through any other means. Please talk to us about the options available if this applies to you.

All applications will go through an allocations process.

If you receive care, or are currently undergoing assessments for care, you will need to see our care team who will carry out an assessment with you to ensure we can meet your needs.
