When an extra care flat becomes available, the Scheme Manager will meet with the Nominations Panel. They will decide who should be offered the flat from the waiting list. The Nominations Panel is made up of representatives from the GHA and Health and Social Care.
Each extra care housing development aims to have a mix of ages and an equal mix of people with low, medium and high care and support needs. In addition if a person can afford partial ownership then they will not be offered a rented flat.
The Nominations Panel will therefore offer each available flat to someone from its waiting lists based on a number of different factors. This means that it may not be the person who has been waiting the longest or has the highest care and support needs.
If you are offered a flat at a different development to the one you selected on your application form, you have the right to turn down the offer. If you turn down an offer from your preferred development without good reason, you will be taken off the waiting list and asked to reapply when you are ready for extra care housing.
