The Printing Charity welcomed 70 delegates from 40 regional almshouse charities to the Almshouse Association’s Trustees and Clerks Seminar held in Bletchley on Tuesday.

Following presentations on topics that included data protection, fire safety, and cyber security, delegates were given a guided tour of the facilities on offer at Beaverbrook House, one of The Printing Charity’s two sheltered homes for people who have retired from the printing sector or have an immediate family connection to it.

Beaverbrook House has 32 self-contained apartments, providing a caring community where residents live independently but with access to support if needed.

Jon Wright, The Printing Charity’s chairman, said: “We have had a connection to almshouses for 178 years and this event was a great opportunity to show our continuing commitment to providing sheltered accommodation for people who have retired from the printing sector.”
