About Moray House
Built in 1979, Moray House sheltered scheme provides 28 self-contained studio flats and 11 one-bedroom flats for those over 55s.
The scheme aims to support independent living and was initially built by from St Pancras and Humanist Housing Association and passed over to Central & Cecil in 2010. New residents come to us as referrals from Kingston-upon-Thames 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 an emergency call system to all flats. Some flats have shower or wet rooms, while others have baths.
The scheme’s communal facilities include:
- a communal lounge
- a laundry
- a guest room available for a reasonable charge
- staff offices, including one that doubles as a library – the library service calls regularly to change the books on offer
- two lifts
- a small communal garden area with seating and a decorative garden to one side at the front – accessible by some ground-floor flats
- a very small car park (seven spaces only) – residents’ permits, or meter tickets are required to park in the street.
We employ cleaners and gardeners to service the shared areas and residents can also call on our centralised repair service.
How we manage the scheme
Tracey Morgan is the Portfolio Manager for Blackham House, supported by Service Officer Phil. Phil is responsible for the day-to-day running of the scheme and maintains links with outside agencies.
