Almshouse Entrance 01-b_

The Company administers The Merchant Taylors’ Boone’s Charity, which provides just over 30 almshouse dwellings within the Christopher Boone’s Court development in Blessington Road, Lewisham SE13 5FW.  These are for people who are aged at least 57 and are not only in financial need but also capable of independent living. The other dwellings at Christopher Boone’s Court are not owned by The Merchant Taylors’ Boone’s Charity. Instead, they are for sale by One Housing Group on long leases.

A fuller explanation of the almshouse accommodation and application criteria can be found on the Housing Care website, here: http://www.housingcare.org/housing-care/provider-9572-merchant-taylors-boones-charity.aspx
