The Abbeyfield Society has a Christian foundation and was established to alleviate the loneliness of older people We are a local independent Abbeyfield not for profit provider of much needed supported sheltered housing for older people over 55, affiliated to the national Abbeyfield Society which governs our standards and provides support and advice.  


 We provide assured tenancy rented accommodation for up to 7 people (self-funders and those with housing benefit). The house is in a quiet residential area. It is well maintained and has gas central heating. Each resident has their own room with bathroom which they furnish themselves. They are provided with a fridge, microwave, toaster and kettle to make their own breakfast and snacks. They live as independently as they can and receive support when needed e.g for making and attending medical appointments, and chiropodist visits, Residents needs are met by a support plan.  Carers are arranged where needed. Residents have a cooked lunch and tea in a shared dining room and daily support provided by our housekeepers. Residents are encouraged to attend local social activities. They are consulted on anything affecting them. They receive 24 hour emergency support from Lambeth Careline. They have a laundry room with a washing machine and drier for their washing. They have the use of a conservatory and a large well maintained garden. The Society is governed and overseen by a volunteer Executive Committee/ Trustees meeting about a every 6 weeks.
