The Dulwich Almshouse Charity (DAC) is seeking to build a new almshouse, as the current building, constructed in 1739, is not fit for purpose and cannot be redeveloped due to its Grade II listed status.
We believe our current and future residents deserve a home more suited to their needs, that will be more enjoyable to live in and allow them to maintain their independence for longer.
A larger almshouse would also help to address the lack of affordable, sheltered housing for elderly people in the area.
The DAC is being assisted in this aim by The Dulwich Estate, which contributes to the DAC’s funding.
