Find out more about what we do and what makes us different
For over 60 years, everyone is welcome at Abbeyfield. Wherever you find us, you’ll find we’re warm, open and friendly. Community is at the heart of Abbeyfield, where people come together to share meals, company, and enjoy life. Abbeyfield is more than a home, it’s a neighbourhood, a community, a family.
Abbeyfield the charity
Abbeyfield is a charity for older people providing housing across the UK and internationally. It is our mission to enhance the quality of life for older people through high quality accommodation in a stimulating environment to maintain a socially active life.
Living life to the full
Our homes are closely linked to their community to enhance not only the lives of our residents, but older people living locally. From trips to the seaside to festivities throughout Christmas, Abbeyfield's connection to the local community provides events that all older people can enjoy.
What makes Abbeyfield different?
You’ve heard about the older people we support and what we stand for. It’s the people - the staff, the Board, the ambassadors and our Patron that makes Abbeyfield special. They truly care about providing a great quality of life for older people and strive each day to achieve this.
Abbeyfield's International promotes the Abbeyfield concept globally using its network of member national societies and, through them, an extended network of local societies. Currently we have member societies in Canada, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, Belgium and Jersey.
