St Saviour's Court, our modern almshouse in Purley, Surrey, comprises 53 one and two bedroom flats, providing a socially active lifestyle for our thriving community of Collegians.

Sheltered housing

We manage two sheltered housing schemes: St Saviour’s Court and Hopton’s Almshouses.

Built in 2006 in Purley, St Saviour’s Court provides a safe environment and quality standard of living for our residents. Each of our spacious flats is private and self-contained, but we also provide a communal lounge and garden where residents come together to chat and relax. A Senior House Manager, and an assistant, are responsible for the overall welfare of residents.

Built in the eighteenth century, Hopton’s Almshouses in Hopton St., London, SE1, consists of twenty flats and houses arranged around a central courtyard.
