Introducing the new McCarthy & Stone Foundation!We’re proud and excited to announce the launch of our new fantastic foundation – which aims to increase the wellbeing of older people while bridging the gap between generations.

 

The foundations for a bright future 

After this difficult year - but one which has clearly demonstrated the incredible importance of supporting others – we’re delighted to share some brilliant news: the launch of the McCarthy & Stone Foundation.

McCarthy & Stone is dedicated to celebrating, championing and defending the role of older people in our society. The foundation allows us to consolidate and build upon all the incredible charitable and volunteering work already being done by our business, employees and homeowners to promote the health and wellbeing of older people across the UK and forge stronger connections between generations. 

“The foundation aims to build a society where older people enjoy better health and wellbeing and where everyone can live a life that is fulfilling, connected and independent.” 
Graeme Marsh - McCarthy & Stone Foundation Manager
 
The foundation aims include: 
  • Getting generations to work together to ensure older people are included and valued
  • Harnessing older people’s skills to help children to learn and develop
  • Creating community spaces that are hubs for intergenerational activity and connection.

It will achieve this through long term charity partnerships with the likes of The Royal Voluntary Service and Coram Beanstalk; offering one off grants to charities that share our goals and by matching volunteers to volunteering opportunities across the UK.
