How To Apply

Persons wishing to apply for a cottage should write or email to the property manager (see Contact Page for details). A form and further details will be supplied. Once an application is received they are kept on file until a vacancy occurs when the trustees look at all applications and decide who they would like to interview. Decisions are made primarily on the basis of need rather than chronologically in order of application. An important part of the process is the fact that applicants are expected to provide the names of two people (often sons, daughters, nieces or nephews) who will act as sponsors. The main role of the sponsor is to help to maintain the resident’s ability to live independently.
