Welcome to the Liversage Trust, Derby - Founded in 1529
In the 21st century, we provide:
Residential care for frail elderly people
Grants for the relief of poverty in Derby
The Liversage Trust was set up under the Will of Robert Liversage in 1529 for the relief of poverty. It is one of the very few medieval charities still in existence having been set up as an Alms-deed, a practice which ended in the 16th century. The Trust has maintained Almshouses since the 17th century.
The Trust has a proud history and a progressive future; providing quality accommodation and assistance for Derby people in need, hardship and distress.
The Trust presently maintains four estates of Almshouses with a total of 160 homes providing a wide variety of accommodation for older people, together with Liversage Court which is a Care Home for more frail elderly people. It also has a number of houses and flats which are not Almshouses and which are let without age restriction. A number of commercial premises complete the Trust's portfolio, and provide an income to support its wider charitable activities.
