Sheltered Housing for older people
The Charity’s two vibrant sheltered housing schemes for older people, John Betts House and Sycamore House are centrally located with good transport links and local amenities.
We provide quality, independent sheltered housing in safe and secure settings, surrounded by beautiful communal gardens, that allow residents to come and go as they please.
Our schemes have:
a communal lounge
supported by Scheme Managers.
Everyone is welcome to attend the Open Day – Please RSVP to our Administrators at email@example.com so we can arrange catering, or book a free ticket here.
UNITED in Hammersmith & Fulham’s Warmer Together campaign is now live. It calls for local older people who can afford to do so, to donate all or some of their Winter Fuel Allowance to help their less well-off older neighbours this winter.
Winter can be an especially difficult time of year for older people in our borough; of the 19,000 residents aged over 65, over half have a long-term health problem or disability. 25% live in poverty. 43% live alone.
Last year, 278 isolated older people in need were supported, through grants to local charities including Fulham Good Neighbours, the Iraqi Association, Lunch Club for the Blind, and the Somali Development Network.
“Most of the services catering to our community focus on young people, and the elderly are usually forgotten. It’s a great change.” – Resident with no family (83) who attended a social club launch.
Can you give a gift?
Are you someone who received a Winter Fuel Allowance that you don’t feel you need? A local business looking for a Christmas incentive to give locally? Or a younger person who also wants to take part in giving?
Visit unitedhf.org/warmertogether for details on how to give.
“This campaign is a wonderful way to bring people together to support our neighbours. One hundred percent of funds raised will go to local community projects that help older residents.” – Cllr Sue Fennimore, Deputy Leader of H&F Council.
Many thanks to LBHF Council for their partnership in this initiative.
We provide quality sheltered accommodation in safe and secure settings, surrounded by prize winning tranquil communal gardens that allow residents to remain independent for as long as possible, within a friendly and supportive community.
