Sheltered housing: Acocks Green
Our development in Acocks Green was originally owned by another almshouse charity, Carrs Lane Homes. The charity was wound up and the dwellings transferred to Yardley Great Trust in 2011.
This is a development of mixed age buildings, with the earliest building dating from 1964 and the most recent from 1995. Set in the heart of Acocks Green, the development consists of 46 one bedroom flats and 1 two bedroom flat. Residents get together for social events on a regular basis in the spacious residents' lounge, but there is no obligation to do so.
Despite the nearby shopping centre being busy and thriving, our Acocks Green development is peaceful and attractive with mature, well maintained gardens.
Residents are supported by our on site scheme manager service with back up from a 24/7 control centre for out of hours emergencies..
Acocks Green shopping centre, library, main bus stops , and train station are all within walking distance.
Main bus routes nearby are 1, 3, 11, 37
