“a national treasure” – HRH Prince Charles
Whiteley Village, a registered charity, near Walton on Thames is set in 225 acres of beautiful Surrey woodland. The Village contains 262 almshouses, a care home and extra care apartments for nearly 500 older people of limited means and is managed by The Whiteley Homes Trust (registered charity 1103056).
There are some self-funding spaces in the care home and extra care apartments, available for short term respite or long stay and these support the funding of Whiteley’s charitable aims. The Trust needs to fundraise every year to provide its services and to maintain the Grade II almshouses. In addition there are future development plans for a new £5m care hub and more almshouses.
The Trust’s role is to enable our older residents to be as independent as possible and contribute as much as they can to Village life. We actively encourage volunteering within the Village. Our committed team of employees delivers home help, nursing and end of life support to our residents, in addition to pastoral care, housing and benefit advice and property management.
The ethos of collaboration runs through everything we do. Residents, family members, friends employees volunteer and work together with enthusiasm to run the Village and plan for its future.
There is a strong sense of togetherness, belonging, care and neighbourliness.
Everyone in the Village is a valued member of our community and benefits from the mutual support which brings happiness and security in later years. Our residents enjoy sharing experiences and developing friendships.
There are many activities available to those who come to the Village with over 20 clubs run by the residents including water fitness, golf, bowls, putting, art, mahjong, and photography.
New approaches to care, sustainable accommodation, and meeting the demands of modern society are all part of our ambition.
