6 Charitable goals

Our retail outlets fund the charity’s wider work supporting vulnerable older people in hospital, at home and in the community. Funds raised in our retail sites are often invested in developing local services for the benefit of local patients, such as our Home from Hospital service that provides support for patients who are due to leave hospital.
