Milton Keynes Council Sheltered Housing & Sheltered Housing with Care

Milton Keynes Council Sheltered Housing is primarily for people aged 60 years, or 55+ with a support need, and over. It provides a safe, secure and supportive environment for people wishing to live independently in their own homes.

We have a range of self-contained properties designed for people who wish to live independently, including one and two bedroom flats, one and two bedroom bungalows and studio flats.

All our schemes have a Sheltered Housing Officer who offers a daily visit to each tenant to check their overall well-being. Each property also has a Community Alarm system for help in an emergency.

To live within Sheltered Housing you must meet the criteria set out in the Housing allocations policy. You will then also have a sheltered housing assessment completed with you by a Sheltered Housing Officer, and agreed by the Sheltered Housing Manager.

For people who may require more support the Council has developed some of its Sheltered Housing Schemes to provide Sheltered Housing with Care who provide 'on site' personal care support. These schemes are registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC), and are regularly inspected.

The three current schemes are:
