The Ogilvie Charities

Sheltered accommodation in Suffolk and Essex, grant making for charitable purposes

The weekly charge which the Trustees are obliged to make for the accommodation applies to each flat whether occupied by a single person or a couple.  It includes the cost of maintaining the premises and equipment in good repair and decoration; the heating of the communal areas, and lighting; the upkeep of the grounds and fences; and the Scheme Manager's services. This charge will be reviewed regularly by the Trustees and any changes which they consider necessary to make will be explained to the residents at the time. It is payable weekly, in advance, to the General Manager, Ogilvie Charities, The Gate House, 9 Burkitt Road, Woodbridge, Suffolk, IP12 4JJ. The Colchester Borough Council recognises this charge in determining the rate of housing benefit allowance payable to those who are entitled, and close collaboration is maintained with them in such cases.
