Independent Living communities

Our Independent Living communities offer people aged over 55 a chance to downsize and move into a social community with like-minded neighbours.

Our locations

Our Independent Living homes are located across central, south and east Manchester, meaning you don’t have to move too far away from the people and places you love.

Neighbourhood inspections at your Independent Living community

Come along to our new neighbourhood inspections at our Independent Living communities. Current residents are invited to join us as we walk around your communities– you’ll have the opportunity to point out any issues you want addressed as we go. Whether it's something in the communal garden or overgrown trees – tell us about it, we’ll note it down and make sure it’s added to the list to get sorted.

What are these inspections for? 

Neighbourhood inspections are all about us working together to keep your local area looking great. It's a priority for us to make sure your Independent Living communities are kept in a great condition so you can be proud of where you live. A key way we’ll do this is by staying on top of any necessary work at these inspections.

These inspections are for reviewing our outdoor areas, if you have issues indoors please chat to your Independent Living Officer about them.
