SJMT is really excited to be part of a new exciting project
We are pleased to share that SJMT is going to be part of an exciting national research project which looks at how almshouse communities support people to be more resilient through social change. We are one of seven charities participating and one of three that will be a project lead. This project will be led by Zoe from SJMT and involve researchers visiting our site in Olton to meet staff and residents. There will be opportunities for our residents to participate over the next 12 months.
Zoe Richardson, Director of Operations and Deputy CEO at the Sir Josiah Mason Trust, commented: "SJMT is really excited to be part of this project. Our oldest Almshouse charity is over 370
years old and we know the difference that this housing model makes to our residents. We are delighted to have the opportunity to demonstrate this and be part of a national research project."
