For more than 300 years, our mission has been to support people aged 60 and over to live independent, safe and happy lives, with the freedom to live your life as you choose.

Our sheltered accommodation combines the peace of mind of secure, self-contained bungalows and apartments with a sense of community created by our communal residents’ lounge and shared private gardens.

Our Scheme Manager acts as a ‘good neighbour’ to all of our residents; providing information, signposting and reassurance as well as being responsible for the maintenance of our properties. A 24 hour call system allows all of our residents to gain assistance in the event of an emergency.

About Us

As an almshouse charity founded in 1635, our mission is as relevant as ever.

We exist to provide modern, safe and independent homes in Greater Manchester that:

  • Are affordable, modern and well maintained in order to meet the evolving needs of older people
  • Enable people to enjoy a good quality of life in a supportive, peaceful and safe environment
  • Support residents to stay connected with relatives and friends through community links and social activities

We are regulated by The Charity Commission and Homes England to ensure residents have confidence in the way we run Edward Mayes Trust.
