United St Saviours Charity

Over 60? Live in Southwark? Looking for a new home in a caring community?






In a fast-changing borough like Southwark, we know how important it is that our older residents have somewhere secure and beautiful to live, and still feel part of the Southwark community.  Our almshouses in Bankside and Purley provide independent sheltered homes in small active communities of Southwark people looking for peace of mind and support in their later years.  We have vacancies at:


  • St Saviour’s Court, modern purpose-built sheltered housing in Purley, Surrey. Local shops nearby.Only 20 minutes by train into London Bridge


  • Hopton’s Almshouse, stunningly located in historic Bankside, close to the river and many local facilities and well-served by public transport.


To be eligible applicants must be on low incomes and have limited savings and have lived in Southwark for the last 3 years. They would normally be aged 60+.


Both almshouses offer superbly maintained and well-equipped flats [for individuals or couples]. There are one bedroom and two bedroom flats at Purley, and one bedroom flats at Hopton’s. There are communal rooms for social activities, stunning gardens, on-site staff daily to call on, as well as a 24-hour emergency careline system.
