WELCOME TO THE
- Enabling elderly people to lead safe, secure, independent and fulfilling lives and caring for them when in need
- Helping younger people to achieve their potential and to lead financially independent and productive lives
- Strengthening the communities in which those we support live, ensuring no-one suffers through rural isolation
Although proud of our history we do not live in the past; on the contrary the trustees regularly revisit our aims and aspirations to make sure they remain relevant and achieve maximum impact in the 21st century.
The hub of our work with and for older people is based at the Seckford Almshouses where we offer sheltered, very sheltered, residential accommodation and day care services enabling older people to lead safe, secure, independent and fulfilling lives.
Young people and education have been in our DNA for more than 350 years. Today we educate some 850 pupils aged from 4 to 18 through Woodbridge School.
Responding to the pleas of help from the communities of Beccles and Saxmundham to provide educational opportunity and choice for its young people, we established two publicly funded Free Schools which opened in September 2012 and cater for 11-16 year olds.
We support and help young people under 25 in the local communities in which we operate through our Springboard initiative.
