A Legacy The Gift of a Lifetime
Almshouses have been part of the British landscape for hundreds of years, and today provide dignity and independence for over 35,000 residents in need. Almshouse charities receive no government funding, and their future is reliant upon the commitment of their trustees and the generosity of the British public. One of the most effective ways of helping almshouse residents both today and in the future, would be to remember them in your Will.
