Housing Information

Masonic Housing Association specialises in the provision of sheltered housing for older people and we have 5 purpose built housing schemes located in:
• Essex (Hamilton Court)
• Northamptonshire (Palmer Court
• Buckinghamshire (Prebendal Close)
• Warwickshire (Reading Court)
• Staffordshire (Wilson Keys Court).

Day to Day

The day-to-day management of our sheltered housing schemes rests with voluntary House Committees.

These Committees provide support to the Scheme Managers, maintain a waiting list for accommodation and are responsible for operational budgets.

They also keep in contact with our tenants through regular meetings and social events.

Sheltered housing

All of our sheltered housing schemes provide purpose built self contained flats for older people who are able to care for themselves. Single people and couples aged 60yrs and over can apply and in some cases applicants over 55yrs will be considered.

Our housing is not restricted to applicants with Freemasonry connections, we accept applicants from local communities, overseas and the 5 Local Authorities where our developments are located.

Scheme Managers

We have Scheme Managers on site at all of schemes working Monday – Fridays who will assist our tenants with reading and understanding mail including forms, making and responding to telephone calls and providing emotional support, as well as assisting with the organisation of social events.

Our Scheme Managers cannot provide personal care or administer medication – these services must be provided by outside organisations.


The Scheme Manager can assist with signposting tenants to Social Services, medical personnel and carers to enable tenants to live independently at our schemes.

Should a tenant be taken ill our Scheme Manager can contact a GP, relatives and, if necessary, call an ambulance. The Scheme Manager can provide assistance in an emergency but only on a temporary basis until support is in place.

More information

Activities are organised by the Scheme Manager, the House Committee and Tenant groups, our tenants can be involved as little or a much as they wish and their privacy is always respected.

Our aim is to ensure that our tenants both now and in the future live in safe, affordable, fit for purpose accommodation.
