Compassion lies at the core of our identity and purpose. We have an enduring charitable legacy, from 1444 to the present day. We are committed to the support and service of others.


We endeavour to be the best we can be, striving for excellence in our approaches and practices, being ready to learn and to set examples of leadership.


Our independence, based on a 600-year heritage, informs our responsibilities as stewards in the present, gives us an ability to innovate, and to respond to needs and opportunities.

As stewards of an enduring legacy, we are driven by charitable ambition and our responsibility to future generations
