This is an opportunity to join an engaged and committed Board of a wonderful charity that has been providing safe, secure and affordable accommodation to hundreds of women for nearly two hundred years.

The Friendly Almshouses (TFA) is a long-established charity, founded in 1802 by a group of women who saw a need for financial and housing support for older women. It has had a presence in Brixton since 1863, when seven cottages providing accommodation for 28 women were opened. Today, following a redevelopment programme, there are 38 flats in all. More than 200 years on, the Charity remains true to its original resolution – that it should be an organisation run ‘by women for women’. In 2015 the Charity was incorporated as a Company limited by guarantee.

TFA’s current Treasurer is stepping down after a long period of service, having been with the organisation since 2015, and are now looking for a committed and motivated individual to join our Board. A full candidate information pack is available here.
