We have nomination rights with Hanover Housing, a national leader in providing a range of attractive and affordable homes and related services designed exclusively for older people. This means that, in some areas of the UK, ICE members may be able to access Hanover retirement properties as a priority and avoid lengthy waits.
If you are looking into retirement properties and Hanover Housing offer something you are interested in, then contact the Ben Fund to see if we can process your application and speed things up a bit.
If you are experiencing financial pressure, you may also be eligible for financial support, either to pay for one off expenses or as an ongoing grant to get you through a particularly challenging time.
The Ben Fund also has a range of properties in Haywards Heath, West Sussex, should you be looking at moving into this area. There is a diverse mix of residents so they are not exclusively retirement properties and they are for independent living.
