Who we are:

Walsingham Care is a local charity, based in Walton On Thames, and was created after the sale of The Home of Compassion in Thames Ditton.

We provide financial assistance to older people of limited means in Elmbridge.

The Charity provides financial support to people over the age of 60 who are suffering from long-term ill health, disability or terminal illness.

Walsingham Care aims to improve the quality of life for retired people.

What we do:

We are a grant giving organisation and we can, on occasion, assist by providing grants for:


Help with funding care equipment to allow you to remain in your own home.


Assistance in meeting costs to allow a rest or a short break for the home carers.


Support with the costs of nursing care at home or respite care in a nursing home.


Regular top-up grants towards any shortfall in care fees for people in residential or nursing home care.


Projects working to alleviate social isolation and/or loneliness.

Our grant criteria:

All applications must be supported by a third party agency – we cannot accept referrals from individuals, their family or friends.

Examples of third party agents include local authorities, Social Services, housing associations, charities and community groups, health practitioners, Citizens Advice Bureaux, or other support agencies. Please contact us before completing the process if you are unsure if your organisation is eligible.

The Charity’s beneficiaries should have limited means and we have devised a fair system of calculating who is eligible for our assistance. When making a decision on a grant application, we take into account income, any capital assets and any family support available.

Our criteria are reviewed from time to time to ensure that they meet the needs of applicants and the resources of the Charity.

As a charity our funds are necessarily limited and unfortunately we are not always able to meet demand.
