Abbeyfield International Member Societies

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, Poland and Jersey. 

Abbeyfield homes, wherever they are, aim to put something back into their communities. Our staff and volunteers join us with wide-ranging skills and expertise from a variety of industries and professions allowing us to provide the best service to our residents.
