Services for residents and non-residents
Housing for the over 60s
We provide over 1,000 high quality, good value homes with a high level of service through our dedicated team. Our schemes are designed for independent living with the added security of being fitted with an emergency alarm call system, monitored 24 hours a day seven days a week. All our schemes have designated Independent Living Officers who offer an intensive housing management service and in many schemes they also provide a housing support service.

Services for Radian residents
Have you considered adaptations?
Helping you to live independently in your own home is important to us. Adaptations can improve the quality of your life if you are disabled or frail.
If we normally provide a repair service to your home, we can help by installing adaptations for you and members of your family who live with you. We can fund and carry out adaptations up to the value of £1,500 per household where these are needed or advise on whether you may be eligible for grant funding if your adaptations exceed this amount.
For more information, visit our Adaptations page
Mutual exchange and downsizing
Considering moving and want to make sure your future home is suitable for adaptation?
Our team of Radian Adapt Occupational Therapists would be happy to preview any Radian property with you and have written a checklist of things to consider when moving. Call Radian Direct on 0300 123 1 567 and ask to talk to one of our Occupational Therapists.

Health & Wellbeing Forum and other resident groups
Our Health & Wellbeing forums give residents and people we support with a disability – including physical disabilities, mental health issues, learning disabilities, Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and sensory impairments (and their carers) – the opportunity to come together to discuss the issues that affect them.
We also welcome and will support any disabled resident or their carers who would like to be involved in our other resident groups.

Older People’s Day – you’re an inspiration
Sunday 1 October is Older People's Day, which also coincides with the UN International Day of Older Persons.
People are living longer and 23% of the UK will be aged 65 and over by 2035. Older People’s Day exists and aims to challenge negative attitudes and outdated stereotypes and focuses on celebrating the achievements and contributions that older people make to our society and the economy. Activities will also promote healthy life styles, give opportunities to combat loneliness, encourage volunteering and sharing skills with different generations.
The Government and other supporting groups, under the “Full of Life” banner, have made UK Older People’s Day the focus of a wide programme of activity, celebrating later life. Numerous organisations across the UK are working together to coordinate a national programme of activities and events leading up to and around 1 October. To celebrate Older People's Day here are a few things you can do:
- Read this 10 tips for ageing better from Age UK.
- Challenge any negative attitudes and outdated stereotypes.
- Celebrate and appreciate the older people in your life.
