Fife Council has 48 sheltered housing developments across Fife, providing over 1000 safe and secure tenancies. Through them, we offer two levels of support:
Intended for people who can live independently with some help and support. Each development has a sheltered housing officer who regularly checks how you are either in person or through the intercom system. The officer is on duty from 9 am to 3 pm Monday to Friday. The dedicated response service provides back-up the rest of the time.
Very sheltered housing
For people who need more supported living. These developments have two sheltered housing officers who contact you on a daily basis either by personal visit or through our intercom system. Very sheltered housing also provides an optional meals service.
Who is eligible for sheltered or very sheltered housing?
