Welcome to Glebe Housing Association
Glebe Housing Association was formed in 1974 as a not for profit organisation providing sheltered accommodation for older people. Set in the extensive grounds of Bencurtis Park in West Wickham, Kent, the Association has 202 homes in the form of rented apartments and leasehold bungalows.
“Our aim is to provide safe, comfortable and secure accommodation enabling people to live independently but within a supportive community. We believe that by giving older people the freedom to live life as they choose increases their independence, dignity and enjoyment of life.”
We have an on-site restaurant and offer regular activities, events and outings. We also provide wardens and if needed our residents can access additional care and support through our Support Plus service.
Glebe Court Nursing Home, also within the grounds of Bencurtis Park provides full time nursing care for 47 residents.
Leasehold Bungalows – Waiting List
Due to the current very high demand for our bungalows we are closing our waiting list until 31st December 2018 so that we can allocate to those already on the waiting list. We appreciate that it can be frustrating when you have to wait for long periods.
Studio Apartments for Rent – Waiting List
Our studio apartments for rent are also currently in high demand therefore we are closing our waiting list until 31st December 2018 so that we can allocate to those already on the waiting list.
One Bedroom Apartments (2 person accommodation) for Rent – Waiting List
We are currently still accepting applications for our one bedroom apartments for rent.
Internal Transfer Policy
We have updated our internal transfer policy and those persons currently in leasehold bungalows can now apply for 1 bedroom rental apartments.
It is difficult to advise how long you might wait but we do publicise the vacancies on a quarterly basis to give you an indication. For example between October and December 2016 we had the following vacancies arise:
|Rentals||No of Vacancies||No on waiting list|
|1 Bed apartment||0||18|
