FOUR independent living flats run by the Bromsgrove United Charities for older people have become available and the organisation wants to hear from anyone interested in living there.

The modern blocks in Phebe Bell Court and Kathleen Field Court provide accommodation for up to 52 residents in total, aged between 60 and 93.

Bromsgrove United Charities is a member of the Almshouse Association and takes great pride in providing a resident warden at each site which it says is a rarity these days.

The warden offers low-level support, organises social functions, and helps the residents live independently in their own private flats but secure knowing they can get help and support if needed.

A 24-hour lifeline system is in place and there are communal areas and gardens.

Anyone aged 60 and over with a connection to Bromsgrove district can apply, regardless of their background.

The day-to-day administration is carried out by a clerk and the treasurer and there is a board of six trustees, including a vicar from the Ministry Team of the Bromsgrove Parish.

No pets are allowed and there is a non-smoking policy.

The monthly contribution covers all support, laundry, gas heating and water rates, and those in receipt of housing benefit are welcome.

Anyone interested should call 01527 876792 or 07877 300921 to arrange a viewing.

All applications are assessed individually, and the applicant will have an informal interview if they fit the charities criteria.
