"The Charity’s main function for many years has been to provide and manage almhouses on Polworth Road, Streatham.

Unfortunately the original 10 homes built in the 1930's were becoming very outdated and no longer fit for modern comfortable living so two years ago Thrale embarked on a £3m redevelopment of the site, to create a mix of updated and new, affordable homes, fit for the 21st century. These buildings were finished during the summer this year.

There are now seventeen lovely homes around an enclosed garden - small houses and modern flats - offered to women of 60 and over who are living in or have strong connections to the Ancient parish of Streatham. The redeveloped site was officially opened in October 2015 by Chuka Umunna MP.

The charity’s ethos is about supporting communities – whether it is providing a sense of community for residents of the almshouses who might otherwise suffer from isolation, or by helping other organisations who make a real difference to the communities they serve." Show less
