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.
