Who we are

The North Memorial Homes is a charitable trust set up to provide independent living for ex-service personnel in possession of some sort of disability pension.



Predominantly, beneficiaries of the charity will be ex-servicemen and their families who are linked to Leicester. However, other categories of people may be considered if there are unfilled vacancies.



Twenty semi-detached houses, all but five of which have been converted into two self-contained flats, thus making 35 residences in total. The homes are architecturally interesting and are set in beautifully maintained grounds.


Our Belief

We believe both veterans and their families should be able to live the rest of their lives in peaceful and tranquil surroundings. We owe a huge debt to those who have served in our armed forces to ensure our country’s security.
