Types of homes we offer

We let a range of homes across Northern Ireland to suit people with a variety of housing, care and support needs.

Family Homes

Family or “general needs” housing is for single people, couples of families and is allocated through the Northern Ireland Housing Executive’s Common Selection Scheme.

Over 55s

Apartments for active older people with communal space for activities and socialising which are allocated through the Housing Executive’s Common Selection Scheme.

Independent Living

Apartments or bungalows, generally for the over 60s, that are linked to 24-hour emergency support and where people who need it can benefit from onsite support for part of the week.  A range of communal facilities and social activities make these safe, friendly and supportive places to live. Allocated through the Housing Executive’s Common Selection Scheme.

Supported Housing

We provide a number of schemes in partnership with Health Trusts and other organisation that are specifically designed for people who need some extra support including people living with dementia, young care leavers and people experiencing mental ill health. These homes are allocated following an assessment by the Health Trust in liaison with Clanmil. You can either contact the Trust directly or speak to a member of our team to connect you to the referral pathway.

Housing with Care

Our Housing with Care homes in Belfast and Magherafelt are a home from home for frail older people who need care and support with their daily routine. These homes are allocated following an assessment by the Health Trust or through a direct referral to Clanmil.

Private Rent

As well as homes for rent through the social housing waiting list, we offer a small number of properties to let at market rent on a short-term basis of around 12 months.

We market these homes through local estate agents who advertise them on Northern Ireland’s property websites:



To rent one of these properties you will need a guarantor and a deposit will be taken.  Our letting agent will carry out reference and credit checks on our behalf.
