Offering a choice of homes in and around Bedford
We are taking applications for the three extra care schemes to which we have nomination rights, Dame Alice Court (Anchor), Sir William Harpur House (bpha) and Oak Way House (Bedford Citizens Housing Association). To apply for any of these three schemes you will need to have a care need. If you receive Disability Living Allowance, Attendance Allowance or Personal Independence Payment you are assumed to have a care need. If you don’t receive any of these benefits, consider whether you struggle to manage everyday activities like washing, dressing, cleaning, shopping, preparing food and staying safe in your home. If you need help with tasks like this you may have a care need.
Register your interest
To register your interest in any of the following schemes, please contact the Community Programmes Director at The Harpur Trust, on 01234 369500.
We advise potential residents not to register their interest unless they are ready and prepared to move as soon as a vacancy arises.
