Show more "Barnes Court in Burnley is situated adjacent to Townley park and surrounding parkland and has excellent transport links, by bus and train to the surrounding areas, including Bradford, Preston and Manchester. The town centre is only 15 minutes walking distance offering amenities such as shops, doctors and dentists, and there are regular visits to the court from the local mobile greengrocer and library. The scheme offers a mix of sheltered accommodation for people over 55 and general needs housing for families. The court has a pleasant communal lounge, games room, laundry room and guest room.

Our Court Manager Service is an important and integral part of Housing & Care 21’s approach to supporting our residents. It is designed to offer support and security to the court and those residents on court who need it. The service is about promoting and encouraging individuals to maintain their independence in their own home.

Our Managers are also responsible for the day to day running of the court including looking after the Health & Safety, property management and resident engagement." Show less
