Sheltered and retirement housing

Sheltered housing is also known as retirement housing and is for those who are over the age of 60.

There are many different types of sheltered housing schemes, both to buy and rent.

Most of the schemes offering properties to rent in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole are provided by us or local housing associations.

Allocation of these properties is usually through the BCP Homechoice housing register.

If you are not sure whether you’re eligible for this type of housing, call us on 01202 123 147.

Some housing associations will accept application directly from you and may be able to help you where we cannot.

BCP Homes manage 31 sheltered housing schemes on our behalf.

Buying a property

Properties are also available to buy.

To find out more about schemes available locally or elsewhere, contact Age UK or HousingCare. If you’re worried about buying or selling a home, both agencies will be able to help you.
