Abbeyfield is one of the largest voluntary sector UK-wide providers of housing and care for older people, committed to alleviating loneliness while maintaining independence. Founded in 1956, Abbeyfield has grown to include over 700 houses and 80 care homes managed by professional staff and volunteers, providing support, care and friendship for around 7,000 residents.
Few organisations better understand the experience of ageing. This knowledge has helped shape our values, services and facilities to provide older people greater choice in how they live their lives - sensitive to their preferences and requirements. We're about so much more than just bricks and mortar.
Our focus is on the individual. All our income is put straight back into providing the best possible services and meeting the changing needs of our residents. Quality of life begins at home, and as our homes are not owned by a parent company, we don't have shareholders - we're simply a charity that puts the needs of older people first.
We own all our houses and homes outright - from sheltered living accommodation to homes for those suffering from dementia. Across the UK we've accommodation tailored to the needs of our residents, designed to provide the very best life for older people. And with an army of volunteers supporting us, we have access to an almost unlimited source of feedback and extra ideas about the services we provide.
We have a long and proud tradition of being there for the older members of society, and to continue to do so we need your help. Donations are vital to us and with your generosity we can continue to plan for the future.
