Council in call to over 60s

A council says many people do not realise they qualify for sheltered housing.

Babergh District Council wants to attract new applicants to sheltered housing in Lavenham, Long Melford, Nayland, Hadleigh and Sudbury.

Sue Lister, supported housing corporate manager, said: “Anyone over 60 is able to apply. Charges vary but are typically about £100 a week.”
