About Abbeyfield & Wesley Society

Abbeyfield & Wesley was formed on 1 April 2013 following the merger of Abbeyfield UK (NI) Ltd and Wesley Housing Association Ltd.

In 2003 sixteen local Abbeyfield societies merged together to form Abbeyfield UK (NI) Ltd, which managed 19 supported sheltered houses.

The North Belfast Mission Housing Society was established in 1947 by a group of lay clergy from the Methodist Church. It became a registered housing association in 1979 and subsequently changed its name to Wesley Housing Association, managing sheltered housing and a residential care home.

Abbeyfield & Wesley Housing Association has a range of housing options for older people - independent living for older people in sheltered housing with scheme supervisors; supported sheltered housing which has higher staffing levels and provision of meals; and residential care which is staffed 24 hours a day.

The Abbeyfield & Wesley society have three guiding principles:

  • Older people have an important role to play amongst their families and friends in their community.
  • Overcoming loneliness and insecurity can make all the difference to an older person’s well being and quality of life.
  • Local people have an essential part to play in helping older people in their community.
