United St Saviour’s Charity has been providing almshouses for older people from Southwark since the late 16th Century. Historically the Charity provided almshouses in Park St, SE1 and later at a site in West Norwood. We currently provide 75 homes across two sites at Hopton’s Gardens and St Saviours Court in Purley. Our residents live independently within a sheltered housing setting, in homes suitable for single people or couples. We provide a small number of 2 bedroom properties at St Saviour’s Court but the majority of our properties are self-contained one bedroom flats. To give all our residents’ peace of mind, each property is fitted with an emergency pull cord system, that link directly to our on-site managers or out-of-hours call out service for when managers are not on site.
We’re pleased to say that we received over 95% satisfaction in our last resident survey and provide excellent services to our residents to provide them with a comfortable and safe environment.
