The scheme’s communal facilities include:
- A large lounge
- Communal kitchen
- A free laundry service
- Beautiful garden
- Private car park – 10 spaces only
We employ cleaners and gardeners to service the shared areas, and residents can also call out centralised repair service. A cosy guestroom is available for a reasonable charge, accommodating up to two guests.

Portfolio Manager - Tracey
Tracey began her career with C&C at 17 years old, straight from College. Her first role was as a Care Assistant at one of our Care Homes. Tracey was then offered various secondment roles, eventually leading her to secure a role as Area Manager for Care.
After working in the Care Department for 27 years, she was offered and accepted the position of Senior Scheme Manager for Sheltered Housing. Two years ago, Tracey was offered her current role as Portfolio Manager overseeing Westminster Sheltered schemes and West London General properties.
How we support residents
Residents are provided with a tenancy pack, including their tenancy agreement and a resident’s handbook, outlining their rights and responsibilities. Our sheltered Service Officers work with each resident to draw up 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 support 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.
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.
