About Us

OSJCT is one of the UK’s leading not-for-profit care providers.

Our sole purpose is to provide the best possible care to those who live with us – some of the most vulnerable people in society.

The Trust’s charity status means we are regulated not only by the Care Quality Commission, an independent regulator, but also by the Charities Commission, a government body ensuring that all the Trust does is for public benefit.

It also means that any profit is re-invested in the care we provide, our people who provide it, and in improving our buildings which are our residents’ homes.

We have no shareholders and we pay no dividends. Our only debt is with Barclays Bank, which is located in England where we operate; this debt represents less than one percent of the charity’s annual income.

We are a highly transparent organisation in terms of finances and governance, providing open book accounting to our Local Authorities as a condition of our contracts with them, and an annual report and accounts to the Charity Commission, which is also available on our website.

We believe the sole purpose of care providers should be to provide the best care possible to those that live with us. As a not-for-profit provider, we have the right values, experience, and commitment to be the partner needed by government and by the public, to deliver a social care sector we can all be proud of.

Dan Hayes, Chief Executive

Our values
Those who come through our doors are at the heart of everything we do and their well-being is paramount.

Our care is underpinned by the ethos of our sponsoring Orders, The Sovereign and Hospitaller Order of Malta and The Venerable Order of St John of Jerusalem. Drawing on their 1000 year history of care, they nominate volunteer Trustees to help to ensure the quality of our care runs through everything we do.

We pride ourselves on delivering care to the highest standards and truly believe in person-centred care. This equates to learning as much as possible about each individual to deliver tailored care and support to meet particular needs and preferences. An atmosphere of warmth, harmony and understanding along with a consideration for the need for privacy, respect of dignity and freedom of choice are integral to the life and atmosphere we create.
