Make a donation

Your support helps The Almshouse Association to continue to provide vital support to almshouse charities and their residents, whilst preserving the historic tradition of almshouses for the enjoyment of future generations.

The Almshouse Association provides help and advice to member charities in modernising and sustaining their properties to deliver the secure, warm, comfortable homes needed for today’s residents.  Loans and grants are available to member charities to help with the cost of essential repairs to the buildings as well as for refurbishment projects.  In many cases these involve old, listed buildings that form part of our national heritage, but which are expensive to maintain and renovate to provide modern-day living standards.

Your donation would be gratefully received and invaluable in helping to maintain the vital services of The Almshouse Association on which its member almshouse charities heavily rely.

Your contribution would mean so much in enabling us to continue our work for the benefit of almshouse charities and their residents, whilst preserving the historic tradition of almshouses for the enjoyment of future generations.
