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 house whether occupied by a single person or a couple. It includes the use of the premises and the communal facilities such as the Reading Room and the external and internal repair and maintenance of them, water and sewerage charges, and the upkeep of the grounds. The cost of supplying central heating, domestic hot water and electricity, the services of the Scheme Manager and other staff, and a number of amenities such as a subsidised 'shopping bus 'into Leiston town centre is also included. This charge must be reviewed regularly by the Trustees because of the inevitable effects of inflation, and residents who feel unable to meet these expenses in full from their present income may be entitled to help from the District Council by way of Housing Benefit allowance and, indeed, some receive it already.
