We provide dedicated housing to older persons and provide housing related support to residents who might need that additional help. We offer a variety of homes including Independent Living or Extra Care across Newport, Monmouthshire and Caerphilly.
We aim to make it easier for people to live healthy independent lives within their own homes and communities. Our ambition is to deliver new, innovative approaches to older persons housing.
In April 2014 Newport Housing Trust joined the Pobl Group under the new name of Derwen. It was seen as an opportunity at this time to develop the first dedicated older persons Housing Association in Wales.
The older persons housing from Charter Housing was transferred into Derwen, developing an exciting opportunity for both residents and staff.
