Apply for your new home
Complete our registration form to start your application.
Once we receive your form, we will contact you to discuss your housing options and eligibility with you. We may also assess your needs, if required.
You will be offered your new home if accepted.
If you have a social worker
If your care is managed by a social worker, talk to them about applying for Independent Living.
How long does it take?
New applications are assessed fortnightly. Every effort will be made to ensure your application process is as short as possible.
How homes are allocated
Essex County Council and your local district council decide who can live in Independent Living housing. Every effort will be made to ensure that people with a mixture of low, medium and high care needs live in the new homes.
