The Cullompton United Charities is an amalgamation of charities which have been formed by gifts from local benefactors over many years. The United Charities is both an Almshouse Charity (with nine Almshouses), and a charity to help those within the Parish who are in need and qualify for assistance.
The income from the investments now provide the funds to enable the Trustees to assist those facing hardship.

This covers a wide range of assistance, and applications for help can be made on forms giving details of requirements, the reason for the application and details of current financial position.
Assistance has included provision of stair lifts, some medical equipment, the provision of necessary items such as beds, refrigerators and washing machines, and many other expenses which are necessary for health and well being of residents. Help is also given to local organisations such as Surgeries and Groups with gifts towards facilities for the disabled.
