Appleby Blue Almshouse

94-116 Southwark Park Road, Bermondsey, SE16 3RR


In June 2020 building work began on a new almshouse for the United St Saviour’s Charity in partnership with the developers JTRE London, who are funding this in discharge of their commitment to social housing in developing Triptych Bankside.

The almshouse will contain 57 apartments – 51 with one bedroom and 6 with two bedrooms.  Eleven apartments are designed to be wheelchair accessible.  There will also be a communal kitchen, a library, meeting rooms, a spa and well-being centre, landscaped gardens and a courtyard, and a rooftop allotment.

 The building is named after Dorothy Appleby, a 17th century benefactor of the Charity, and the colour blue, which is associated with Bermondsey.

Current status

The almshouse is due to open in 2022.

Applicants for a place must be aged 65 years or over, have lived in Southwark for three years at the time of application and have a low income.
