The Charity Commission has a unique relationship with the Almshouse Association (NAA). We have a policy agreement in place to work in partnership and to share information regarding almshouse charities. Specifically, it is our policy to copy draft schemes relating to almshouse charities once agreed with the trustees.
These almshouse factsheets are the result of some genuine partnership working, being a collaboration between the two organisations. There are three factsheets covering the three main problems faced by almshouse charities that find themselves in trouble. These factsheets can be used by trustees and case officers to provide information and guidance in support of potentially failing almshouse charities.
- Trusteeship - Almshouse Factsheet 1
- Property - Almshouse Factsheet 2
- Financial Difficulties - Almshouse Factsheet 3
