Our History

With a history stretching back almost 200 years, we are one of the oldest benevolent charities in the UK

Where it all began

The Printing Charity (previously known as the Printers’ Charitable Corporation) was founded in 1827 by George and Charles Searle and their employer, John Kind, an independent printer, in the Kings Head Tavern in Poultry, London. With a history stretching back almost 200 years, we are one of the oldest benevolent charities in the UK.
