Almshouse factsheets

Factsheets covering the three main problems faced by almshouse charities.



The Charity Commission has a policy agreement in place with the Almshouse Association to work in partnership and to share information regarding almshouse charities.

These factsheets cover the three main problems faced by almshouse charities that find themselves in trouble:

  • trusteeship
  • property
  • financial difficulties

This guidance can be used by trustees and commission case officers to provide information and guidance in support of potentially failing almshouse charities.
