"United St. Saviour’s Charity is building a new Almshouse in the north of Southwark that will provide modern, independent sheltered housing fit for the 21st century.

Appleby Blue Almshouse will set a new benchmark for the quality of older people’s social housing and services. It has been specifically designed for today’s generation of older people who want to lead an active life in the heart of the inner city. The Almshouse will combine radical design with future-proof assisted living technologies to provide self-contained homes that meet the needs of older residents, including those with emerging health conditions, within a flourishing and caring community.

This will be the first almshouse to be built in the borough for decades and will help meet the shortage of social housing specifically designed for older people. It will provide genuinely low cost extra-care sheltered homes for around 90 Southwark residents, enabling them to grow older and to stay part of their community, but also to remain independent, even those with care needs or age-related disabilities.

Located at 94-116 Southwark Park Road, the almshouse has 57 one and two bedroom flats, surrounding a central courtyard, and includes a community lounge and café, cookery space, a spa and beauty room, and other social spaces. The charity wants it to be part of the neighbourhood, not a retreat from it, and will welcome local residents to use its facilities once open.

If you are interested in finding out more, or would like to put your name down to live in Appleby Blue Almshouse, please contact our head office on newhomes@ustsc.org.uk or on 020 7089 9014." Show less
