St Mary Newington Close

We currently operate a waiting list. As we undergo the redevelopment of Edward Edward’s house, our housing stock is limited to one site. We currently have limited opportunities for providing housing. We recommend you complete the application process for the chance to join our waiting list that is prioritised according to need after an evaluation and interview process.

St Mary Newington is scheduled to close for redevelopment in 2028. All residents will be moved to Edward Edward’s House, SE1.
Please consider this if you are thinking of applying for residency.
