Papworth Trust rents homes to people, some of whom are disabled. Many of our homes are fully wheelchair accessible, but we also have standard specification properties for people who do not need any adaptations.
We are a Registered Provider of Homes, which means we are classed as a ‘Social Landlord’ and our homes are rented at either a social or affordable rent to people who need a home. The Trust’s home rental service is regulated by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).
Our Housing Management and Maintenance service looks after the management and repair of all of our properties across the East of England.

You can apply for a Papworth Trust home in two ways depending on the type of accommodation you need:
1) If you require supported living, please request a referral from your local authority social service or health department.
2) For all other accommodation, you must register with the local authority housing department in the area you wish to live. The majority of Papworth Trust accommodation is allocated through choice based lettings systems. For further information on how social housing is allocated in your area, please contact your local authority housing department.
