Welcome Welcome to New Charter and to our booklet about Retirement Housing. We provide safe, comfortable homes for rent. Some of our accommodation is designed specifically for older people. We own and manage around 14,500 homes in Tameside which include 22 Schemes and 1 Extra Care Scheme. The map at the back of this booklet shows their location and will help you make the right home choice.

Our retirement housing for rent is ideal for people who want to enjoy their lives, free from worries of insecurity or home maintenance. It also provides peace of mind if you are concerned about your health and would feel better knowing there’s someone to call on - just in case. If you are over 60, whatever your current circumstances, whether you rent or own your present home, you can apply to live in one of our schemes. You do not need to be living in Tameside, you will have your own self contained apartment, which is designed with old people in mind. Your home will have central heating, a fitted kitchen and bathroom, and the support of a Scheme Manager. The Community Response Service will cover emergency calls out-of-hours via the speech alarm in each property, 365 days a year. We have electronic door entry systems which provide safety and security in each scheme, giving you peace of mind and making it a ‘home from home’. You will find a happy, sociable environment where you can join in activities when you feel like company and enjoy your privacy when you don’t. Our staff receive ongoing professional training to ensure a high standard of service delivery. On site there will be a fully trained Scheme Manager to co-ordinate any support needs required and liaise with our Repairs Service on your behalf. The Scheme Manager will co-ordinate weekly social activities. This will vary between schemes to reflect the interests of the residents. All tenants are invited to take part. You are welcome to contact New Charter to arrange a visit to one of our schemes to help you make an informed choice about this type of housing.
