Home > Our Company

The Skinners’ Company is one of the Great Twelve livery companies.

We are incorporated by a Royal Charter of 1327 and run seven schools, almshouses and charities. We have a long tradition of charitable giving and encourage all members to contribute to the Company in any way they can.

The Company has about 1,300 members – apprentices, the Freedom, the Livery and the Court. Our mission is to foster education and training, house the elderly, assist people in need and to support charitable causes, and to those ends support the fellowship of the Company.
