Supported Housing Schemes - Information
The Supported Housing Schemes are
designed for those who want to continue to live independently, but
within a supported and Christian community.
Who is Eligible?
The Board can consider an
application for Supported Housing from a Beneficiary who has
completed at least five years qualifying service.
Deaconesses; licensed Church and Lay Workers; and Church Army
and Spouses, Civil
Partners, Widows and
Widowers of Beneficiaries.
Since 2010, the Board has made
changes to the Eligibility Criteria with regard to the
Supported Housing Schemes, as follows:
Lay Pensioners -
applications can now be considered from all individuals who receive
a pension from the Board, including retired former employees of the
Church's National Institutions and Episcopal staff. However,
the 'Lay' Pensioners would not qualify for a subsidised service and
applications from those with Ministry service would always have
priority on the waiting lists.
