CESSA Housing Association (CESSA HA) manages a total of 8 Sheltered Housing Schemes for a variety of ex-service personnel and their families in the locations listed below.  The aim of sheltered housing is to enable occupants to live independently for as long as possible and each flat is let at reasonable rents on an assured tenancy.  Accordingly, applicants need to be capable of independent living at the point of taking up a tenancy, but if additional services become necessary from other agencies later, then any that can be delivered to someone's home can be provided within the scheme.  The extent of facilities routinely provided is illustrated on each scheme page.
 
CESSA HA has 5 Schemes of its own in the Portsmouth/Gosport area, applications for which are welcome from former military personnel (including National Servicemen), their spouses, partners, widows/widowers, parents and children who are aged 60 or over. Former Reserve Force members RNXS and MOD civilian employees are also welcome to apply.

Under the terms of the tenancy agreement, successful applicants are expected to use their flat as their 'only or principal home'.  Homowners can apply, but once a tenancy has been accepted then any other property must be sold.
