We are a charity with many strengths. We are responsive, reliable and reputable. We use these strengths to step in and support where our communities need us most. 

At first glance, Bath is a beautiful city but its wealthy veneer masks a city and surrounding area with its own share of people suffering the impact of poverty and the less desirable aspects of modern life.

While the modern day St John’s continues to provide almshouse accommodation, just as it did in 1174, as social needs have changed, so the charity has adapted and extended its charitable reach to meet these new set of needs.

Our work is multi-faceted but, broadly speaking, comprises four key areas:

Independent Living Service (incorporating our almshouse provision)

Funding Support Programme

Community Outreach

Managing our Property Portfolio 

Governing all that we do is our purpose: To change lives. For good.
