Highwood Mill is an Extra Care Housing Scheme in Horsham which opened in 2016. This is currently the largest extra care scheme in West Sussex that Adult Social Care can nominate to. It has a mix tenure of 70 affordable rented properties as well as 35 privately owned apartments, of which Adult Social Care on behalf of Horsham District Council has nomination rights to 50 units. The care and support within the extra care scheme was originally procured by the landlord, Saxon Weald Housing Association, and the current contract is due to end January 2022.


Following the Procurement of the Care Contract within Highwood Mill Extra Care Scheme, within the council’s current Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) Framework, the Executive Director Adults and Health will be asked to award the contract to the successful bidder.
