King Edward VI Almshouses provide accommodation for individuals or couples, able to live independently, in housing need and living on a low income in the Saffron Walden area. The organisation has an impressively long history, having been founded by deed in 1400. Though no longer working exclusively with the ‘lame, crooked, blind and bedridden’, the Almshouses have played a vital role in community life, supporting people in need ever since. Like many Almshouses King Edward VI has had to adapt to a changing society: it was fascinating to work alongside staff and trustees as they explored options and understood how best they could invest in their accommodation and meet future needs.
