We give priority to applications from local people and the surrounding areas. Applications will normally only be accepted from people outside Hampshire where a particular need can be established or there is a family connection to the area.
Residents pay a weekly maintenance contribution towards their accommodation and a heating contribution. These are reviewed annually. The current charges are:
Maintenance Contribution: £115.00 per week.
Heating Contribution: £19.00 per week.
How to Apply
Because the charity provides subsidised accommodation for those of limited means, applicants need to complete a financial assessment to evaluate their finances.
You can download the application form here, or telephone or call into the office to collect one. Alternatively we can post a copy to you.
We will request references and the completion of a medical questionnaire. You will then meet the matron to talk through your personal situation; this may include medical diagnosis, next of kin, medication and how you manage day to day. The final stage is a meeting with a small panel of trustees to chat about your housing need and the contributions you feel you can make to our community. Following that meeting, the charity will offer successful applicants an almshouse which we feel best suits their needs.
