Cheshunt  Almshouses

The Beaumont Charity manages forty unfurnished properties across two sites, designed with the needs of older people in mind. The principle behind everything that the charity does is that residents should enjoy independence and the freedom to come and go as they please while living in comfortable and secure accommodation. Residents should feel confident in the knowledge that support will always be available, whether from the charity itself or from outside agencies, should the need arise.

Above all, the charity respects residents’ privacy.
