About our sheltered services
Raven owns 20 sheltered housing schemes, with mainly one bedroom flats although there are some two bedroom flats, bedsits and and bungalows. Raven also owns and manages three leasehold schemes for retired people, who buy 80% of the equity of either flats or bungalows. Leasehold sheltered flats or bungalows are sold on the open market.
Our sheltered schemes are not 'homes for old people', they are places where people over 55 come together to form a community. Residents live independently in their own homes with the safety net and support of a scheme manager. All schemes have a sheltered housing officer.
To apply to live in one of our sheltered homes you should contact Reigate and Banstead Borough Council 01737 276000.
Sheltered Saints Award
Our Sheltered Saints Award is a way we can show appreciation to residents of sheltered schemes for being good neighbours and going the extra mile. Winners get a £25 shopping voucher of their choice and the other nominees receive a letter of appreciation from Raven's chief executive.
Rated 'excellent' by Sheltered Housing Support Service
