Making a positive difference

Barchester’s Charitable Foundation is a registered charity that helps older people and adults with a disability across England, Scotland, Wales and Jersey. Our focus is about connecting or re-connecting people with others in their local community, and we support applications that combat loneliness and enable people to be active and engaged.

Green outdoor space

Outdoor space where people can get social, healthier and happier is more important now than ever.

Mobility equipment is key to getting people living with a disability out and about in their local community and giving them independence.

Firstly, a huge thanks to everyone who supported Lauren and Suzi to reach the summit of Ben Nevis on 1st June. They ‘smashed’ their own targets and have raised well over £2,000, which is absolutely fantastic.
