Our Pillars are the foundations of our organisation. The vision which has proudly supported our mission for over 400 years.

Independence to live a full life

Independent living doesn’t mean living without help.

Community at the heart

Plymouth Charity Trust is centred around encouraging a positive and caring community.

Sanctuary in a safe environment

Everyone is deserving of shelter and a secure place to call home.

Stability through difficult times

Life can be challenging, but the right support can bring stability when you need it most.
