Established in 1991, The Orders of St John Care Trust (OSJCT) is a charitable trust which supports nearly 3,000 older people, employs just over 4,400 colleagues, and manages over 500 volunteers in 61 care homes and eight extra care housing schemes across Gloucestershire, Lincolnshire, Oxfordshire, Suffolk, West Sussex, and Wiltshire.

The Fremantle Trust, also a charitable trust, has a significant presence in Buckinghamshire, supporting over 750 people and employing over 1,300 colleagues across multiple facilities, including 11 care homes for older people and residential and supported living services for people with learning disabilities.

This partnership is an excellent strategic move for the two charities which share the same charitable objectives and a values-led approach to care. Together, they can achieve greater benefits for residents through shared size, pooling of resources and economies of scale.

Richard Lunn, Managing Director – Care at Christie & Co, comments, “It was a pleasure to facilitate the merger of these two well-established, well-respected charitable trusts whose shared values will no doubt create a brilliant partnership, making a true difference to the lives of the people in their care.”
