Who is eligible to live on cottageHOMES estates?

Supported living cover image

We provide support from your first day in the industry all the way through to retirement. To live on one of our five cottageHOMES estates you need to meet certain criteria. 

To qualify, applicants must have a retail industry connection and meet the following criteria:

  • Either have five years’ service (which can be joint for couples) in the retail industry, selling, manufacturing, wholesaling or distributing retail goods or an associated trade, or the partner of a person with five years’ service. These five years can be from any period of your life and does not need to be recent, plus service from a deceased spouse/partner can also be considered.
     
  • Or be a relative of a person currently employed in or retired from the retail industry, who is your main carer. If your application is based upon a relative’s retail service then this must have been served within the last five years.
     
  • Be retired (of state retirement age but can be slightly younger if retired early due to disability) or within one year of retiring.
     
  • Have care and/or social, financial, medical or other supported accommodation needs.
