We believe people need people

When communities thrive, we all benefit, and everyone has a part to play.

Our vision

Our vision is a society where everyone has an opportunity to live a life that is fulfilling, connected and independent.  Where older people enjoy better health and wellbeing and do not suffer from isolation and loneliness.

We will achieve this through generations working together to ensure older people are included and valued, local charities are better resourced to deliver services, and children can be supported to learn and develop. We want community spaces to become hubs for intergenerational activity that bring a sense of belonging, independence, and connection.

Our heritage

For more than 40 years McCarthy & Stone has created retirement communities that support older people and enrich their quality of life, helping to bring people together, improve their wellbeing and help rediscover their purpose in later life.

Community is at the heart of what we do and over the past three years, a huge amount has been achieved to support charities and organisations around the country. Working together, our business, employees, suppliers, and homeowners have raised more than £600,000 in the past three years for good causes.

From local hospices to community transport, we’ve helped thousands of people. McCarthy & Stone now wants to do more to create a lasting impact. In November 2020, and in line with our purpose to celebrate, champion and defend the role of older people, the McCarthy & Stone Foundation was launched.

Why now?

The events of 2020 and the Coronavirus pandemic have shown just how important communities are for society to endure tough times and thrive in the future. They have also highlighted how there are still real challenges to overcome, and how the most vulnerable in our society are often impacted the hardest. We have an opportunity to work together with our employees, partners, and homeowners to make a lasting difference to people in need around the country.
