Moray House sheltered scheme provides 28 self-contained studio flats and 11 one bedroom flats for older people aged 55+. The scheme aims to support independent living. New residents come to us as referrals from Kingston-upon-Thames Council.
Moray House is an attractive five-storey block, which blends with the other blocks of flats in this residential area. It was purpose built in 1979 and passed from St Pancras and Humanist Housing Association to Central & Cecil in 2010.
Residents live independently in their own flats and can ask for support from the Scheme Manager 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.
Our Portfolio Managers are responsible for the day-to-day running of our sheltered schemes, aiming to keep things running smoothly, with good team work, empathy and organisation. They also maintain links with outside agencies.
Brett provides new residents with a tenancy pack, including their tenancy agreement and a resident’s handbook, outlining their rights and responsibilities.
Brett then works with each new resident to draw up an individual support plan. This may include 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.
As well as informal socialising, regular activities at Moray House include:
- weekly Bingo session
- a fortnightly film club
- monthly coffee mornings – often with invited guests who can offer advice, for example, on benefits
- lunch trips
- tabletop sales and other fundraising by the resident-led Friends of Moray House
Various activities are provided by our Arts and Events team, these may take place off-site.
C&C regulary holds roadshows, conferences and assemblies to allow for our residents the opportunity to communicate with us clearly and directly.
