Boone’s Homes is the new name for the Merchant Taylors' Company Almshouses. Merchant Taylors' is proud to have provided almshouses since the Middle Ages, first in the City of London, and now in Lewisham.

The Company built London's first Almshouses in the 15th century and over the course of the Company's long history several sites have been used for housing for those who require it most. Then in 2019, the Company unveiled the completed Christopher Boone's Court, a new development in partnership with One Housing Group housing association.
