Our principal activity
Our Almshouse. The provision of 14 homes for people over the age of 60 in Edward Alleyn House
We also aim to meet the needs of older people who live within the area of benefit in a number of other smaller ways:
1. Our Warden runs a drop-in group open to our almshouse residents as well as older people living nearby. The group has one or two outings a year too.
2. We give small grants to two connected charities who operate within our area of benefit, Bishopsgate Foundation and Camberwell Consolidated Charity, who themselves distribute this in the form of small charitable pensions to eligible older people.
3. We also give small grants to charities who share our objectives to help older people by providing support services in our area of benefit. The charities we support are St Luke’s Trust, St Christopher’s Hospice and Link Age Southwark. We do not accept unsolicited applications for support from other organisations.
