50+ Housing

Darlington Borough Council are proud to offer safe and vibrant accommodation for over 50s.

50+ housing usually consists of 1 or 2 bedroom flats, but there are also some bungalows available. Living in this type of accommodation can have huge benefits to your well being.

Our schemes have a keen focus on community living with a warm and welcoming feel. The varied activities can help you maintain a healthy and independent life. All 50+ housing also comes with the Lifeline service giving you extra peace of mind.

We are committed to providing safe, energy efficient and comfortable homes. We have a responsibility to make sure your home is safe, healthy and free from things that could cause serious harm including damp and mould. Find out more information on our Damp, Mould and Condensation website.​

Extra care

Extra care housing is for people who have care needs but is not a care home. This type of housing offers the same support and facilities as sheltered housing. There is also a delicious lunchtime meal served daily and an onsite care team to meet any care needs.
