Rockdale Housing Association

Rockdale was founded over 60 years ago

We have two beautiful sites just off the High Street in Sevenoaks, Kent, where we have over 150 sheltered flats and our residential care home, Rockdale House.

Our History

Rockdale Housing Association was set up over 60 years ago with the aim of providing housing and care for older people in Sevenoaks. It was largely the result of the determination of one woman – Miss Beatrice Wilson – a gifted physiotherapist with a vision to improve the quality of older people’s lives in the town.

Born in 1897, she trained as a physiotherapist at Guy’s Hospital, showing her commitment to Sevenoaks by opening the town’s first physiotherapy centre in South Park in 1937. In 1948 she realised her ambition of improving the care of older people in the town by setting up Rockdale Housing Association, and opened Rockdale House, a residential home, in 1953.

Constitution

Rockdale Housing Association is registered under the Industrial and Provident Societies Act on charitable model rules. It is also registered with the Tenant Services Authority and is a member of the National Housing Federation.
