Explore what we offer for residents at Parson Latham's Charity

Residents at Parson Latham’s Charity enjoy single bedroom accommodation with their own bathroom, kitchen and private entrance. Access to town shops and public transport are only a few minutes’ walk from the building. We are very proud of our lovely lawned garden containing many fruit trees and a variety of shrubs.

While the organisation promotes independent living, it recognises that this is within a community environment. Each occupant is issued with a Residents’ Handbook containing guidelines to maintain mutual cooperation and smooth running of the almshouse.
