Operating as a charity and with a volunteer management board, Abbeyfield & Wesley believes it is important that quality services are offered for affordable living and that any surpluses are reinvested back into services provided.
The philosophy is to treat each resident with dignity and respect and encourage as much independence as possible whilst ensuring individual care needs are met.
The Abbeyfield Society was founded in London in 1956 to alleviate loneliness amongst older people through the provision of housing. The movement spread with the setting up of local Abbeyfield societies throughout the UK, Europe, and in 14 countries including Australia and Canada.
Wesley Housing Association, formerly the North Belfast Mission Housing Society, was established by a group of lay clergy from the Methodist Church in 1947, and in 1979 became a registered housing association.
Following a year of discussion, Abbeyfield UK (NI) Ltd and Wesley Housing Association Limited merged in 2013.
