Annual Report & Audited Accounts

Lilian Faithfull Care is a Registered Charity. Importantly, this means any financial surplus we make is reinvested for the benefit of our residents.

We don’t have shareholders and don’t pay out dividends to outside stakeholders.  Everything we do as an organisation must fall within our charitable objects.

We remain true to our founder Lilian Faithfull’s principles of the charity; a desire to improve the lives of others through care and dedication.

As a charity, you can trust we are in care for the right reasons – not for profit. With 96p in every £1 spent towards the day to day care of their residents – and all that entails. We financial support around 75 residents a year by subsidising fees to the amount of £1.55 million. Through this subsidy and our ‘home for life’ pledge, we will never ask a resident to leave their group for financial reasons.
