Company

ScotsCare is the trading name of The Royal Scottish Corporation, the working name of The Scottish Hospital of the Foundation of King Charles II, which was set up by successful Scotsmen to help those from their home country who had fallen on hard times.  It is the oldest Scottish charity operating outside Scotland and was granted a Royal Charter in 1665.

The charity had evolved from an earlier mutual-aid society or ‘box club’ for London Scots called the ‘Scots Box’.  This was designed to help impoverished Scots in the capital who were not entitled to Parish poor relief, and in funding the burial of poor Scots during the Plague.  From this foundation, ScotsCare evolved.
