Extra care housing

Extra Care housing is a type of purpose built housing scheme to enable people over 55 who want to continue to live independently but with the added benefit of care and support as and when it is needed. 

Supported housing

Dudley Council and selected registered social landlords offer housing schemes for older people that give the freedom of living independently with help close by if needed. Some supported housing is advertised on the Dudley at Home website.

Buying your council home

Under the Right to Buy scheme you may be able to buy your home from Dudley Council.

If you have lost or are worried about losing your home the Homelessness Prevention and Response Team at Dudley Council can offer assistance to help you resolve your housing problems whether you are a homeowner, renting, or living with friends and family.
