Our Mission

At The Chester Bluecoat Charity, we work to change the lives of people in need throughout the city and the surrounding area. We award grants to organisations that use education and community development to improve peoples’ lives, and provide almshouse accommodation for people in need. Based at the historic Bluecoat building, in the centre of Chester, we also offer office space to other local charities and voluntary organisations, as well as meetings rooms for hire.
