Important message from The Almshouse Association

Following the measures announced by the government on 16 March 2020, to prevent the further spread of Covid-19, the Almshouse Association team will be working remotely. We hope to maintain our usual support during this time but, if there is a high number of enquiries, you could experience a slight delay in getting through to us. Our phone lines will be open from 9:00-13:00 and 14:00-17:00 Monday to Friday. Where possible we ask if you could please contact us by email at in the first instance.

If you are concerned about a friend or relative who lives in an almshouse, you should contact the clerk or trustees of that charity. Each almshouse charity is run independently and they will have their own processes and policies in place to contain the spread of the virus. If you need help identifying the charity, please email us at and we will do our best to help you.

We thank you for your patience over this period.
