Abbeyfield Scotland Ltd provides housing and support for older people in various locations across Scotland.

At Abbeyfield Scotland we provide safe, secure quality accommodation where older people can maintain their independence but benefit from a little help and enjoy companionship and company - when they want it.

Our residents and their families place a high value on what an Abbeyfield house offers – prestigious locations, shared spaces for dining and entertaining, good food and an active social life.

You'll also have the daily support of our in-house staff and 24-hour telecare on hand for peace of mind.

We are registered:

- As a social landlord with The Scottish Housing Regulator.
- As a charity with the Office of the Scottish Charities Regulator.
- With the Care Inspectorate for the provision of housing support services.

All of these organisations set high standards which we have to meet.

Like other registered social landlords, we have members who hold a £1 share and a voluntary Board elected from among the members. The Board is responsible for directing the overall business of the organisation.

In each Abbeyfield house there is a team of dedicated staff which provides day-to-day services to residents. They are supported by an area team (we have three area teams across Scotland), which is in turn supported by a head office staff based in Edinburgh.

Our Services

We provide high standards of accommodation, companionship and a support service designed to promote independence.

We provide a warm and welcoming environment within a shared setting and with individual living areas where you have your own room, with your own furniture and private possessions. There is no institutional feel to our houses which accommodate between 6 and 12 tenants.

Our accommodation is affordable too. Rents are reasonable and all inclusive covering heating, lighting, food, contents insurance, television licence and council tax where applicable.

If you qualify for housing benefits then most of the charges are met. Those tenants unable to meet the cost of housing support services may also receive this free of charge.
