William Cubitt Lodge - Gateway Housing Association
William Cubitt Lodge (WCL) has 21 sheltered one-bedroom flats which includes four adaptable flats for wheelchair users and also houses eight two-bedroom older persons shared ownership over 55s flats.
WCL is also the first scheme to accept residents younger than the standard criteria of being over 60. As long as residents are registered disabled and eligible to qualify for Supporting People payments they can qualify for our sheltered scheme.
WCL is also the first of its kind within Tower Hamlets to offer shared ownership homes for older people. In addition to rent, service charges and bills, a weekly support charge is payable which covers the cost of housing related support. This is subject to a financial assessment.
For specific sheltered housing fees, please contact Gateway Housing Association.
William Cubitt Lodge was built in 2015, opening its doors to residents in March. It replaces our previous scheme St Johns House on Pier Street which was built by the Isle of Dogs Housing Society around 1974.
