Lench's Trust is committed, as an almshouse charity, to work with local communities to provide housing solutions which respond to the needs of older people in Birmingham.
The Trust will:
- promote the development of inclusive communities in which older people will be able to maintain their dignity and independence;
- promote choice for older people - through access to housing and supporte services which are person-centred.
The above commitment is enshrined in the Trust's Governance Documents and in its operating policies which are under constant review to ensure we remain attuned to a changing environment - including raising expectations of our beneficiaries.
As a charity Lench's Trust has a strong relationship with its beneficiaries who are its raison d'etre and we have therefore developed a number of ways by which our beneficiaries are involved in the work of the Trust. This include a Scrutiny Panel made up of residents to our schemes and which is responsible for monitoring and audiingt how the Trust meets its obligations.
