BROOK HOUSE

Overview

BROOK HOUSE offers sheltered accommodation for older people comprised of 18 unfurnished flatlets for single people and 3 flats (with separate bedroom) designed for couples or a single occupant. Each unit has its own kitchenette, shower room and WC. The accommodation is provided over 3 floors each serviced by lift, stair-lift or any of 3 staircases. There is also a disability bathroom located on the first floor for our less able tenants or those convalescing. See our Photo Gallery and Floor Plans

Each floor has its own laundry for residents to do their personal washing and is provided at no additional charge. Sheets, duvet sets and towels are laundered by our own laundry worker and this is included in the rent. A small charge is levied to those residents who wish to have their personal laundry done for them. Benefit Case Studies for Brook House can be downloaded here​.

in addition to their monthly rent. This means that residents do not have unexpected bills to pay each month as regards their living costs.

Tenancies

Residents are granted either starter tenancies or secure tenancies depending on circumstances. A starter tenancy will lead to a secure tenancy after 12 months if applicable.
