Independent living centres - Our centres

Independent living in a community setting

The Council looks after both the properties and residents of all of the Independent Living Centres. Independent Living Centres can be found in Worksop, Retford, Harworth and Misterton. Two of the schemes provide Extra Care facilities for those who need additional support to live independent lives. The Council's Supported Housing Team provide a wealth of experience in dealing with older people and we are confident that our Independent Living Centres give you the perfect opportunity to enjoy your retirement.

24-hour peace of mind

We pride ourselves on providing customers with a warm, safe and comfortable environment. All of the centres have a secure door entry system and the council take care of the building maintenance, 24-hours a day. Our Supported Housing Team provides you with a weekday visit and access to a 24-hour contact centre that will get you help in an emergency. The team are also available to give advice and offer you a helping hand if you need it. Quite simply our Independent Living Centres are designed to give you and your family peace of mind.

Rest assured that you will have access to a wide range of services that will support you for the long term.


Keeping your independence is important to us. Each flat has its own front door to allow you and your visitors to come and go as you like. You’re free to decorate and furnish your new home as you wish to make it as comfortable as possible.

Like-minded neighbours

You will have an opportunity to make new friends amongst your neighbours and each Independent Living Centre has its own programme of resident activities.
