Independent Living

Castles & Coasts Housing Association (CCHA) believes our Independent Living puts wellbeing, community and security at its heart. We create safe, happy environments where residents can interact freely with others, or stay in the privacy of their home, knowing that all of the support they need is wrapped around them.

Looking for your new home?

If you are over 55 and looking for a new home that will meet your needs both now and in the future, then Castles & Coasts’ Independent Living schemes may be the perfect option for you.

Offering a range of apartments for people over 55, in various locations across the North of England, Independent Living properties are about just that – providing you with a safe, secure environment where you can lead an independent life.

Each Independent Living building is unique, but at the heart of all of our schemes is a commitment to the safety and wellbeing of our residents.

As an Independent Living resident, you will live in your own apartment, with its own facilities and a space that you can truly make your own, but with the comfort of knowing there is a friendly community and accessible facilities on your doorstep.

To take your first step towards an independent future, in a home that suits your needs, take a look at our available schemes below or by clicking here.

All of our Independent Living schemes offer the following:  

  • A secure door entry system, with an intercom in your apartment, so you can control who comes to your door
  • A warden call system in each property, which, when activated, connects either a member of our team, or a call receiver, who will provide support and peace of mind.
  • Access to a range of communal facilities
  • A full repairs and maintenance service, which includes an emergency response service, if required
  • Grounds maintenance, cleaning and window cleaning services to keep the building looking its best
  • The option of wellbeing calls, five days a week from our experienced team of Independent Living Wellbeing & Compliance Assistants, to make sure that our residents are safe and well.

In addition, our Independent Living team can also work with residents, to help facilitate a programme of social activities, which are of interest to residents, helping to strengthen the community and help residents make new friends.
