Our work in England & Scotland
The Religious Sisters of Charity were founded in 1815, by Mary Aikenhead where she laid the foundations for the work of our congregation, by founding a hospital, founding a school, and visiting poor people in their homes.
Our work today still falls into those same categories of ministry, as our founder, Mary Aikenhead’s work did:
- Healthcare ministry
- Pastoral/social ministry
See the form our work takes in the England & Scotland Province, detailed below.

Safeguarding Policies in England & Scotland
As Religious Sisters of Charity we strive to serve the poor and most vulnerable people in our society.
As a Province we support the ‘One Church’ approach to safeguarding.
This is a commitment across all the Dioceses and Religious Life Groups in England and Scotland to work together as ‘One Church’ when it comes to safeguarding, with all organisations contracted to a common standards-based approach with transparency and accountability to fulfil our collective safeguarding duties.
