The Barchester's Charitable Foundation was created by Barchester Healthcare in 2000 to give something back to people in the communities where the Barchester care homes operate. 

As a grant giving charity, the Foundation distributes over £150,000 per year to individuals and small community groups/charities across England, Scotland and Wales. By providing grants to improve independence, mobility and quality of life, the Foundation seeks to make a big difference to the lives of older and disabled people.

They offer support specifically for:

  • A grant for people 65+
  • Adults (18+) with a physical or learning disability
  • Adults (18+) with mental health problems

We favour applications that help improve people’s mobility, independence and quality of life. Our grants range from £100 up to £5,000, with the average grant in 2017 being approximately £950.
