The scheme is situated on a pleasant road in the sought-after area of Maida Vale. New residents come to us as referrals from Camden Council.
The facilities we provide
Residents live independently in their own flats and can ask for support from the Service Officer if they need it. There is also lifts and an emergency call system to all flats.
The scheme’s communal facilities include:
- a large lounge
- a meeting room
- a laundry service
- an IT room
- extensive gardens, including an attractive roof garden
- limited parking – 25 spaces only
We employ cleaners and gardeners to service the shared areas and residents can also call our centralised repair service. Several guest rooms available for a reasonable charge.

How we support residents
New residents are provided a tenancy pack, including their tenancy agreement and a resident handbook outlining their rights and responsibilities. Our sheltered Service Officers then work with each resident to develop an individual support plan. The plan may offer support with daily living skills such as claiming benefits, making rent payments, sorting out rent arrears and reporting repairs. Residents who need more help can be referred to specialist agencies.
The friendly atmosphere at our sheltered schemes is vital to us, so we recruit people who are warm, open and sensitive to the needs of older people.
Keeping your building safe
Your safety is our highest priority. Residents who live in Ada Court are able to access full and live information about the safety of your building, including how you can let us know any concerns you may have.
Please see our dedicated page which tells you all you need to know about the safety of your building, fire safety information, and how you can get in touch.
Activities at the scheme
As well as informal socialising, activities are organised such as coffee mornings, film club and aromatherapy. A number of regular and one-off arts, fitness and events are provided by our Engagement Team.
What's in the area
Ada Court is three minute’s walk from a branch of Tesco Local. Other shops in the immediate area tend to be upmarket and expensive. However, the scheme is not too far from shops on Edgware Road. It is also a short bus ride from the library and shops on Kilburn High Road.
Residents can opt to use the Kingsgate Day Centre, which provides transport. It has a lunch club and runs various activities. Ada Court is close to the Regent’s Canal and the popular towpaths around Little Venice. The scheme is also close to Regent’s Park and London Zoo.
Transport in the area is good. Warwick Avenue and Maida Vale tube stations are on the Bakerloo line, along with a wide range of bus routes.
