Age UK Gifted Housing Service
What does it do?
Older owner occupiers donate their property to the charity in their lifetime and then, through a legal agreement with Age UK receive a property maintenance and care co-ordination service to help them stay living independently in their own accommodation.
The charity pays for most maintenance, council tax, water rates, building insurance and emergency alarm. We also provide a care co-ordination service to support and advocate for donors who join the service, and contributions to the cost of care.
