What exactly is almshouse accommodation?

Almshouses have been part of this country’s life for generations and still play an important role in providing charitable housing for those in need.  The majority of the Trusts’ properties are one-bedroomed self-contained unfurnished dwellings specially designed with the needs of older people in mind.  The aim is to provide convenient and comfortable accommodation in a setting which allows residents to come and go as they please.  Our almshouses provide security and residents are encouraged to make friends. All our almshouses have an emergency call system in place, in an emergency, such as sudden illness or after a fall, a resident can summon help.
