A Christian Almshouse - Sheltered Accommodation for Independent Living

A Christian Almshouse - Sheltered Accommodation for Independent Living

St Nicholas Hospital is an endowed Christian foundation with the status of an almshouse. It is registered as a charity with the Charity Commission (Registered Charity No. 214916) and is governed by a board of up to 7 voluntary Trustees, who are responsible for the oversight of the Hospital's assets and their deployment in fulfilling its charitable purposes, which are:

a) the relief of poverty by the provision of accommodation for persons of good character who are in need of assistance;

(b) such charitable purposes for the benefit of residents and former residents as the Trustees decide, including the provision of financial assistance to residents and former residents who are in need.

The implementation of these objectives is at the discretion of the Trustees.

To this end, the trustees generally meet four times a year in January, April, June and October and at other times as necessary, to manage the Hospital and to ensure that it is meeting its charitable purposes and fulfilling its statutory obligations.
