Homes with extra support – also known as ‘extra care’ housing
Extra care housing allows people to live independently in their own homes, with the added benefit of flexible, on-site care and support.
Please click here to watch a video in which residents around the country talk about their experience of extra care and the different ways in which it can improve wellbeing and the quality of life as they get older.
If you are interested in schemes similar to those featured in the video, please contact your local council for further details.

Rent in advance
Almost all partner landlords in Devon Home Choice require successful applicants to pay rent in advance. This could be up to 8 weeks rent regardless of whether you have your rent covered by Housing Benefit.
Please think about saving to cover the rent in advance needed as soon as possible in case you are offered a property. You could have an offer withdrawn if you cannot provide the rent in advance.
