MHA is a charity providing care, accommodation and support services for more than 18,000 older people throughout Britain. Our mission is to improve the quality of life of older people, inspired by Christian concern. MHA Home page
Founded by members of the Methodist Church back in 1943, today we support:
- 5,000 older people living in our care homes, many receiving specialist dementia or nursing care
- 2,500 older people living independently in purpose-built retirement living communities, with access to social and leisure facilities and flexible care should they need it
- 10,500 older people living independently in their own homes with the support of our Live at Home schemes across the UK.
We rely on the commitment and dedication of 7,000 staff and 5,000 volunteers who share our mission and values. Together we are a truly special organisation that aims to provide quality housing, care and support services to meet the needs of more than 18,000 older people across the UK, of all faiths and none.
It gives us great pride to be recognised as a leading provider of care and support in later life. Read more about our ground-breaking work and achievements in our Annual Impact Statement.
