Live safely and well at home.

Elderly Accommodation Counsel (EAC) is a national charity with a mission to help older people make informed choices about meeting their housing and care needs.

We believe that good and trustworthy information about the options open to people is key to planning ahead successfully. Our unique directories of accommodation and services for older people throughout the UK underpin our own advice line service and are used by many others.

We are widely trusted as an independent and impartial custodian of good quality information, and aim to exploit this commercially to support our free public-facing services.

We have a long history of working in partnership with other agencies committed to helping older people live safely and well at home, and we are actively looking for even closer integration with like-minded charities.

About us

About us EAC is a small charity, governed by a Board of Trustees and employing a core staff of two supported by 4 specialist consultants. Two thirds of our resources are used to maintain our information directories and websites. We are currently working with Bassetlaw Action Centre to provide a telephone advice line service, part-funded by OneFamily.

Services for you

Our public services each draw on our detailed knowledge of accommodation and services for older people in every part of the UK. But you choose whether to serve yourself on our website, take a guided tour with our Housing Options app, or talk to a specialist Advisor.

For professionals
