Becoming a Resident

Apply Here ButtonFor information on the accommodation and facilities available to residents, please see our Almshouses page.

Do you qualify to be a resident?

If you currently live within the boundaries of the old Bedworth Urban District Council then you do qualify. You also need to be capable of leading an independent life.

The application form that we ask you to fill in demands a lot of detailed information about you and your present housing in order that we can help those in greatest need. It is our objective to provide accommodation for elderly men and women with limited income who are resident in the Bedworth area.

Applicants should be capable of an independent life and be prepared to move if this is no longer possible.

Accommodation may be offered to successful applicants in the Nicholas Chamberlaine Almshouse depending on availability. We regret that a request for accommodation in a specific flat cannot be considered.

If an offer is made to you and you do not accept, it is possible that you will either be removed from the waiting list or put lower down the order. However, if there are exceptional circumstances the Trustees may use their discretion.
