Deadline:  31st August 2021


Due to the recent retirement of long serving members we are looking for up to 3 people to join our Board of Trustees.

We are an almshouse charity with origins going back to 1495 whose main object is to provide accommodation for poor persons in need. We own and manage 42 apartments, which are designed for comfortable and independent living, on 2 separate sites in Lichfield city centre: one in the Cathedral Close, the other at St. John’s without the Barrs (SJWTB) which includes its own chapel. 18 of the apartments at SJWTB were completed 3 years ago to Passivhaus certification as the first phase of a planned scheme to provide additional accommodation on this site. At present there are 51 residents whose ages range from 56 to 92, though we have no restriction on age.  

Our constitution also allows us to make grants to individuals in need or to organisations which provide help for such persons. All of our beneficiaries must already   y be resident in Diocese of Lichfield.

We rely on our investments (in property and stocks and shares) to supplement the maintenance contributions received from our residents.
