Housing Options for Older People

Southway tenants over 50 can access support from our Housing and Care Options Advisor, who can help you by looking at all of your housing needs.

Perhaps your current home is too big for you now that your children have left? Or you live above the ground floor and are struggling to get in and out of your home due to mobility issues?

It is the role of our Housing and Care Options Advisor’s to work with you alongside other agencies to find the best possible solution. If you would like advice and support with your rehousing options please contact us for more information. Click here to read the Housing Options for Older People (HOOP) Guide.
