Independent Living for Women over the age of 55

Almshouses have existed in this country for over 1,000 years. Their aim is to provide affordable housing enabling individuals to retain their independence and live in their local community. Each Almshouse charity is independent and run by a team of voluntary trustees.

The Rowland Hill Almshouses in Ashford, Middlesex were established in 1812 and are beautiful historic buildings with 24 self contained flats. Each flat is individually designed providing independent living.
