Legacy East Almshouse Partnership (LEAP)


LEAP - Legacy East Almshouse Partnership - is an almshouse charity (Charity Registration Number 1155672). Its purpose is simple. It exists to manage, maintain and develop new almshouses for people in need of housing. LEAP was established in 2013 to provide for the efficient management of traditional almshouses, upgrading them where necessary to meet the requirements suited to the needs of people living there. Almshouses are not just for older people, although they often are, but can sometimes provide accommodation for people of any age, for people with disabilities or for people with the sort of infirmity that comes with age.
