Connecting people and local communities
Julia and Sarah Stepping into Spring
Making a positive difference
Barchester’s Charitable Foundation is a registered charity that helps older people and adults with a disability across England, Scotland & Wales. Our focus is about connecting or re-connecting people with others in their local community, and we support applications that combat loneliness and enable people to be active and engaged.
Your donations help support these people

Outdoor space where people can get social, healthier and happier is more important now than ever.
Nicola on the move
Mobility equipment is key to getting people living with a disability out and about in their local community and giving them independence.
