Many of us reach a point in our lives when we feel that, although we are physically fit and healthy, we would like to have the security of knowing we do not have to worry about the maintenance of our home and the paying of the bills that relate to it. We would like to be living in a community where our needs are understood but we can maintain our independence whilst living in our own home.

For Fairford Place, St Giles and Holy Cross

The Drapers’ Company Almshouses can provide this security for single or widowed people approaching or have reached retirement age, who do not require nursing care. Applicants must be living in Shropshire or Powys or have close connections to these areas.
