WELCOME to the Home page of The Finchley Charities. The Finchley Charities was established in 1488 and further details of how they came to be formed and other significant historical events can be found by going on to the History tab of this website.

The Finchley Charities have almshouses at three sites in the London Borough of Barnet. The sites are at Wilmot Close, Homefield Gardens and Pewterers Court. The Finchley Charities took over Pewterers Court from the Worshipful Company of Pewterers in 1991.

Details of our locations are shown on the Contact tab on this site. You can also email us from this tab.

The composition of accommodation is shown on this page for each almshouse site. Eligibility for residence is shown on the appropriate tab. If you are interested and can fulfil the eligibility requirements, you can download an application form and medical form from this tab.

The current Trustees and Officers can be found on the People tab.

The Trustees wish to encourage residents/tenants and their friends and relations to consider leaving a legacy to The Charities, which can be used as a memorial to their occupation here and would be put towards the benefit of existing and future residents.
