Methodist Homes (MHA) is the UK's largest charity care provider. We inspire the best care and support at every stage of later life, for people of all faiths and beliefs. With over 75 years of experience, we put people at the heart of everything we do.

MHA was founded in 1943 from the work of Rev Walter Hall and a group of Methodists who wanted to improve the quality of life of older people. Their vision was realised as Methodist Homes (MHA) was born, in the time before the creation of the Welfare State.

We're proud of our links to the Methodist Church and our chaplaincy service is dedicated to fulfilling the spiritual needs of our residents and members, and supporting faith communities, enabling people to live later life well.

At MHA, we put people at the heart of everything we do. We get to know their life experiences and interests as we understand that everyone has spiritual needs, a need for finding meaning and purpose in life.

We believe that spiritual fulfillment feels different for each individual and enables people to live later life well. Religious faith, good relationships, hope, and positive experiences all play their part in finding fulfillment.
