The accommodation

Accommodation Accommodation

We have forty flats in Rochester Row; each has a sitting-room, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. All are equipped with an alarm system to summon help in an emergency. Some have a small garden, or balcony.

The minimum age for admission is sixty, although in practice those taking up residence are often older. Applicants must be resident in Westminster at the time of their application, have less than £100,000 in cash or assets, and be able to look after themselves. Priority is given to those not resident in sheltered housing. A daily warden service is provided. If a resident becomes too frail to live independently we help them obtain support, but do not provide that support ourselves.

The cost of living is subsidised through the charity’s endowment, although residents make a weekly maintenance contribution.
