The Foundation has the following objectives:

  1. To provide various levels of sheltered accommodation for:
    • widows or ex-wives of Church of England clergy, retired clergywomen, missionaries, or other women with a close professional connection with the Church of England;
    • unsupported women of Cambridgeshire;
    • persons in need, hardship or distress in the City of Cambridge.
  2. To provide grants or loans for the benefit of residents or others who are in hardship or distress, provided they are living in Cambridgeshire or are closely connected to the clergy of the Church of England, Church in Wales or Scottish Episcopal Church.

Applications for accommodation and grants are subject to selection criteria and all decisions are at the discretion of the Trustees.
