How to apply
Your application will be assessed individually. Every effort will be made to ensure that people with a mixture of low, medium and high care needs live in the new homes.
To apply, contact our customer service team and ask about Independent Living.
Tel: 0345 603 7630
If you have a social worker
If a social worker manages your care, talk to them about applying for Independent Living on your behalf.
What happens next?
After we receive your application we will discuss your housing options and eligibility with you. We may also assess your needs, if required.
New applications are assessed fortnightly. Every effort will be made to ensure your application process is as short as possible.
If accepted, you will move into your new home.
How homes are allocated
Essex County Council and your local district council decide who can live in Independent Living housing. This is to make sure those people who will benefit most from Independent Living are able to do so.
