Housing options

There are a wide range of services to support you with your housing needs, our housing options tool can provide you with information that can help.

Extra care housing

Extra-care housing offers more care and support to people than sheltered housing. People live in their own flat on a specially developed site, with a 24-hour professional care presence, enabling privacy and independence in a safe environment.

Strawberry Gardens is a new extra-care housing scheme opening in Yatton in spring 2020. The waiting list for rentals through North Somerset Council is open.

Find out about eligibility and how to apply for Strawberry Gardens and other extra-care housing schemes.

Housing related support

Housing related Support can mean many things, from budgeting, paying the rent on time, help to deal with specific problems such as tenancy issues, liaising with council, government or health services, finding local services, training or jobs, adapting a home for disability or finding an alternative home. It also helps with signposting to a range of specialist services. This link will take you to a list of services that may be suitable for you.

If you are looking for help with funding a place in a care home, then please complete the self-help tool to start the process of making a referral, or if you are looking to self fund your placement you can contact the care navigator service .  Find out about care homes in North Somerset.
