EAC’s HousingCare is popular, attracting around 14k visits most weekdays and 9k on weekend days.
By far its most popular content are the pages of its retirement housing directory which receive c.5 million unique page views a year. The purpose of the housing directory is to provide information in the same format for every retirement housing scheme or development in the UK, so that our site users can compare them easily, and figure out which, if any, they would be eligible for, would suit them, and they could afford.
We don’t charge housing providers to present their housing schemes on our site. Nor do we charge for the extra pages of information we show about some schemes – this is a reward for fully completing our extended questionnaire, and gaining the EAC Quality of Information Mark (QI Mark).
Callin Court in Chester is an example of a scheme with the EAC QI Mark.
However a number of housing providers choose to subscribe to a service that provides them with additional benefits, and helps us maintain the website and accompanying independent, impartial and professional telephone advice service. We call them Friends of EAC. Will you join them?
