Tipton Village

Tipton Village

Tipton Village provides independent living accommodation across three sites (Swallowfields, Millennium Forge and Exon Court), with a total of 117 homes offering a flexible care and support package.

With all accommodation located in Tipton, each scheme occupies a central location on or near the high street. All are just walking distance from local shops and amenities, along with good public transport links to Walsall and the surrounding areas, which afford residents increased independence and choices in their daily living. Living in well-equipped accommodation with emergency cord-activated alarms, residents have peace of mind with the knowledge that any care and support needed can be provided at any time of the day or night by a dedicated, experienced team. Meals can also be provided by staff.

While retaining their own privacy in self-contained accommodation, residents also become active parts of the scheme’s community by using the extensive services or participating in a range of activities provided by the scheme.

Getting a placement
Accommodation can be applied for directly using the contact details below. Residents pay a weekly rent, service charge and support charge. Some of these charges are eligible for housing benefit. The rent covers the accommodation and housing management costs. The service charge covers heating and maintenance of the property and all communal expense charges. The exact amount each service user will pay depends on their particular circumstances. Assistance will be given to help applicants work out the cost to them individually, and to claim any benefits or subsidies to which they may be entitled.
