  • Client – Thrale Almshouses
  • Project Value – £3M
  • PPP’s role – TBC
  • Project description – Thrale Almshouses provide housing for women aged 60 plus from Streatham, Brixton, Tulse Hill, West Norwood and parts of Wandsworth. There had been almshouses at Polworth Road since the 1930s, but the homes had become old-fashioned and few people wanted to live there, despite the housing shortage in South London. So the Thrale Charity, which runs the almshouses, spent around £3 million to modernise the attractive old buildings as well as constructing two new buildings to blend in with the older ones.
