Elderly and Disabled Persons Garden Scheme

Limited assistance is provided for elderly or disabled residents qualifying for help with front and rear lawn and/or hedge maintenance. The scheme is administered and delivered by Sutton Housing Partnership Ltd in-house.

We deliver garden maintenance services to approximately 180 members who receive grass cutting and hedge trimming services to their gardens on a monthly basis between April to October each year. The scheme provides specific monthly appointments to members for their convenience and added security. Detailed below is the eligibility criteria – applicants must satisfy all the requirements. The scheme for 2014 will continue as it has this year, but you may apply and if eligible will be put on a waiting list to replace anyone dropping out the scheme during next year. Applicants must be:
