Chair of Aberdeenshire Council’s Housing and Social Work Committee Councillor Karen Clark said: “Sheltered housing offers a safe and supported living environment for older people whilst enabling them to retain a sense of independence. Aberdeenshire Council is delighted to offer vacancies at a number of sheltered housing complexes in the area.”
