What is an almshouse, what role have these homes played throughout history, and how are they relevant and important today? This month we are delighted to present a lecture by Elizabeth Fathi, Chairman of The Almshouse Association, who will share an historical exploration of the development of almshouses, how they have evolved over the centuries, to their role today, nationally and in their local communities, when there are now over 1600 independent almshouse charities all across the UK.

Join us to hear about the work of these charities, amongst which the Charterhouse is proud to have been for over 400 years, and how they continue to be relevant and much needed with today's shortage of affordable housing.

Elizabeth has worked in the almshouse movement for over sixteen years primarily as Chief Executive of an ancient almshouse charity in the West Country and latterly as Director of The Trust Partnership providing management services for almshouses and charities across the country. The Almshouse Association, a national membership organisation representing the UK's almshouse charities covers an estimated 35,000 almshouses and 12,000 trustees.
