At the Royal Homes we provide independent living for women with a Forces connection. Accomodation is available to widows and daughters of those who used to serve.

The Royal Homes were originally created as Homes for Officers’ Widows and Daughters following an appeal by SSAFA founder Colonel Gildea in 1899. Today the Homes are still managed by SSAFA.

Our residents are all widows, former wives or single daughters of Officers or Warrant Officers of the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force and for women who are retired Officers or Warrant Officers of those services. Residents must usually be able to look after themselves and their flats.  Residents are mostly aged 60 and over.

Visit the Royal Homes website for more information about accommodation.
