Residents at St John's Almshouses accommodation

Welcome to St John's

St John's Hospital is a registered charity providing Almshouse accommodation, community grants and individual financial support to deprived people in Bath.

The historic charitable trust is as old as Bath itself.  Founded in 1174, it has served the community for over 800 years. Today, its vision is to provide an improved quality of life, through housing and support for older people, and through grant making, for others who are disadvantaged in some way.

The full name of the charity is The Hospital of St John the Baptist with the Chapel of St. Michael, annexed with St Catherine's Hospital. It also encompasses Bath Municipal Charities and a group of other local charities. For convenience and everyday use, it is affectionately known simply as St John's.

The Trustee of the Charity is St John’s Hospital Trustee Limited, a private company limited by guarantee, registered in England and Wales
