What are we?
Whom do we support?
Morden College believes in equal opportunities throughout its operations. As a provider of homes for people in older age the Charity will limit selection of residents only in accordance with the criteria laid out in the Trust’s scheme. The Charity will not discriminate on the basis of race, colour, gender, creed, sexual orientation, or religion; we welcome applications from single people, married couples or those in partnerships.
Applicants to the Charity either for accommodation or financial support must fulfil the following criteria:
- They must have in their working lives held a position of responsibility in a profession, commerce, trade or vocation or have been the partner of someone who has held a position of responsibility in a profession, commerce, trade or vocation.
- They will not be in paid employment and must be in receipt of a UK state pension.
- They will be in need by reason of financial hardship (Morden College does not exclude the poorest in our society). The Charity will also consider applications from people in older age who are disadvantaged in other ways, for example, living in isolation and loneliness, but who may not be fully in penury. We carefully look at all applications to the Charity; if either you or the person you care for would like to understand if you qualify, then please contact us.
The Charity is founded in the Christian spirit. We believe strongly in the values of courtesy, patience, integrity, and generosity of spirit. We foster a community atmosphere within which people contribute to College life when they can, respect each others privacy and dignity and, above all, live life to the full and have fun. We have high standards and are proud of our well-managed and professional organisation.
