Accommodation

The flats at Stoop Court and Lindley House consist of entrance lobby, living room, double-bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. There is a large communal lounge in Stoop Court, with a kitchen attached, and a small communal sitting room in Lindley House. There are guest rooms and a laundry room.

The residents pay a weekly maintenance charge. The Almshouse Manager is available during the day and checks regularly on the welfare of residents. When staff are off duty, there is cover from a mobile warden scheme. Out of hours next-of-kin and friends may be called upon to provide assistance. Periodically social events are organised for residents.

Applications to live in these flats are considered by the Trustees, who take “need” as the main criterion, but must also be satisfied that residents are able to live independent lives and look after themselves.
