Independent Living Service

For residents over the age of 60 or for those with a degree of disability that makes their present home unsuitable, you may be eligible for accommodation as part of our Independent Living Service. These special flats and bungalows are designed to allow you to maintain your independence but provide the additional support you may require.

Find out more about the benefits of the Independent Living Service and see whether it is right for you.


Lifeline Service Logo

If you are of state pensionable age or have a disability or illness and you live in the Borough of Broxtowe you are eligible for inclusion on our Lifeline waiting list. The special unit connects through your phone and comes with a pendant to wear around your wrist or neck. When the pendant is activated, a specialist team will be called to provide support and assistance.

Aids and Adaptations

Adaptations to your home may help you to remain living independently and safely. If you have a disability and live in the county of Nottinghamshire you are eligible to have certain aids and adaptations fitted in your home.

Assisted Collections

Moving full refuse bins can be more challenging as you get older. If you are elderly or disabled, our bin men are able to collect your bins and glass bags from a specified location. Before you can be added to our Assisted Collections register, a member of staff will need to visit your home to evaluate your needs.

Please call 0115 917 7777 or email recycling@broxtowe.gov.uk for more information.
