The Trustees of the Leighton Buzzard Almshouse Charity (charity no. 1118085) invite applications from individuals who wish to be considered for appointment as a resident to one of the almshouses in North Street.

This is a historic dwelling conveniently located within 300 yards of the High Street. The property is unfurnished and consists of a sitting room, kitchen, shower room and one bedroom arranged over two floors. The house is suitable for single occupancy.

Criteria

The trustees are legally obliged to consider applications that meet the following conditions:

  • The applicant currently lives within Leighton Buzzard or its neighbourhood or has strong connections to the area

Individuals who believe that they meet the conditions set out above are asked to complete an application form to show in what way they meet these conditions. Applications should reach the Clerk to the Trustees by no later than 12 October 2021 in order for them to be considered by the Trustees.
