Our sheltered homes

Our two purpose-built sheltered homes, Beaverbrook House in Bletchley and Southwood Court in Basildon, are part of our commitment to look after older people.

The homes offer independent living for people aged 60 years or over, who have worked in the industry and are retired or have a direct connection to the industry.

Residents live independently with the comfort of knowing that they are part of a friendly community, with access to support when needed.
