Our 11 Housing with Support schemes provide homes to 426 residents across Plymouth and are specially tailored for people aged over 60 who have a need for accommodation with extra support.
Sheltered housing provides residents with a supportive and comfortable environment that enables them to live independently at home for longer.
As part of Starts at Home Day, which highlights the value of care and support services and the difference that having a safe and secure place to call home can make to people’s lives, we spoke to some of our customers about what living in our schemes means to them:
