Thorner’s Homes are proud to have offered accommodation to women for over 225 years in Southampton. 

Whilst the needs of women may have changed since then, the fundamental principles behind what we do, have not. 

In 2006, our objects were widened by the Charity Commission from poor widows of good character to include, single women in need over the age of 55. 

Admission Criteria
Under the terms of our charitable scheme we must comply with our objects:

THE PROVISION OF ACCOMMODATION FOR POOR WIDOWS OF GOOD CHARACTER AND SINGLE LADIES IN NEED AGED 55 AND OVER.

Applicants should be single, 55 years old and over, in financial and/or social need.  Applicants must be capable of living independently, as we do not provide care and support.

If you fit the above criteria and feel that living in an almshouse community would suit you, please click on the link below to look at our Accommodation & Applying page for further information.

Please note that accommodation is allocated to the applicant who meets the objects of the Charity and is deemed to be most in need by the Trustees at the time of that vacancy.

All Appointments are made at the Charity’s discretion.
