What is very sheltered housing in North Lanarkshire

Very sheltered housing is a group of self-contained properties for older people that are linked to and supported by very sheltered housing support staff.

 Very sheltered housing provides support through an on-site staff support team and an emergency call system. It usually has a greater level of on-site support than sheltered housing, and provides a meals service. It also usually provides enhanced common facilities, such as a common room for social activities, dining room for meals and assisted bathing facilities. It is aimed at meeting the needs of people who need a greater level of support than can be provided in sheltered housing.

In North Lanarkshire there are 3 very sheltered housing developments provided by partner Registered Social Landlords. For some of these developments the Council has responsibility for all nominations which means for these developments you need to complete a pdf icon Common Housing Register application form [915kb] and a Health and Housing Support Needs Form. Our Health and Social Care Team will then complete a community care assessment of your needs to help us prioritise applicants for very sheltered housing.
