Applications open for 3-bedroom home

Tuesday May 02, 2023

We have a 3-bedroom almshouse home becoming available in June.

Almshouse residents do not pay rent as such – but pay a monthly maintenance contribution which is set at 50% of the rental rate for similar private property in the village.

Applications are invited from people who are:

resident in Great Shelford or who have a strong connection to the village
and are on low incomes
and in housing need
and are capable of independent living.
