The majority of residents living at Grantham close today will be of retirement age, of limited financial means and living within the vicinity of the Almshouse charity and are able to live independently.
Residents pay a weekly maintenance contribution which is similar to rent but different in law, and less than a commercial rate. We guide you through the process of moving in and offer help where ever we can and once settled, two of our trustees will visit you to ensure you have settled in and offer any guidance.
