  • Those who apply directly to us.
  • Those nominated by Maldon District Council
  • Those nominated by the Royal British Legion (two flats only)

Applicants must be 60 years of age or over, in need of accommodation for reasons such as, to be closer to family or friends, unsuitable living accommodation or in need of support.

Applicants must be able to live independently with support (and a care package in place if required).

Criteria for Applying

Maldon Housing Association has been in operation since 1966 and continues to provide a high standard of housing for residents, normally aged 60 or over.

  • Applicants must complete an application form, obtained from the Registered Office or completed online, and return it to the Supported Housing Manager.
  • Applicants must normally be 60 years of age or over. Sometimes exceptional circumstances apply; persons slightly under this age may be considered, for example in the case of the spouse of an older applicant.
  • All applicants must be in reasonable health and able to live independently, although Maldon Housing Association can provide support and assist in arranging a care package if required.

In assessing the needs of applicants considered for accommodation, the Supported Housing Manager will use the following criteria:

  • proximity of family and/or other support;
