Improving the quality of life of older people

Bettering the lives of older people where they live

St Monica Trust was founded on a commitment to support people who lived in our homes as well as providing support to people in their own communities. Our Charitable Impact Team works with older people across the West of England to find ways of improving their quality of life.

From pastoral and spiritual care and community activities, to giving gifts and grants, we support individuals and communities to access the activities that are meaningful to them. We can’t do this alone and our partnerships with communities, charities and other organisations allow us to have the biggest impact possible.

St Monica Trust Charitable Foundation

2023 saw the launch of our new 10-year Strategy. Our renewed purpose is to create communities where older people flourish. To underpin this, we aim to foster connection, provide choice, and strengthen older people’s sense of contribution. A key deliverable of our strategy is the creation of a Charitable Foundation which will be officially launched in June 2024. Please stay tuned for our updates regarding the launch.
