RMBI

At the RMBI, we care for older Freemasons and their families as well as some people in the community. Caring has been our way of life since 1842 and we provide a home for over 1,000 people across England and Wales – while supporting many more.

Whether people need residential or nursing care, specialist dementia support or day services, we care for them professionally and kindly. We treat people as individuals – and we work together with everyone to design a care plan that meets their needs and allows them to experience wellbeing and meaningfulness.

Those members of the Masonic community who choose an RMBI Home have the security of knowing that they have a home for life, even if their financial circumstances – as long as we can still support their needs.

The RMBI is one of four central Masonic Charities that support Freemasons and their families through donations from the Masonic community. You can find out more about the support, advice and funding available at: The Freemasons' Grand Charity, Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys, Masonic Samaritan Fund, Freemasonry Cares.
