Since 1174, St John’s has provided support to the people of Bath and the surrounding area

Impact Report

Today, we work to build resilient communities by supporting people to overcome challenges, improve their lives and live as independently as possible.

We do this in a number of ways. We provide quality almshouse accommodation; we award funding support to individuals and charitable organisations; we engage directly with the local community through our Community Outreach Hubs.
