A Brief History...

     Our Society is a member of The Abbeyfield Society which was originally founded by Richard Carr Gomm in 1956 when a group of volunteers formed a committee which met in Abbeyfield Road (the society was named after that meeting place). That committee became the first Abbeyfield landlord providing housing and support for older people.

     In the space of two years, Abbeyfield opened six houses in Bermondsey, housing 26 older people. By the end of 1960, new Abbeyfield societies had been formed in eight London boroughs and 15 localities outside of London. An essential feature of the concept was and still is to provide help by voluntary workers for elderly people in their own communities.
     Today there are Abbeyfield societies across the UK and in 16 countries around the world - all guided by the original principles and helping many thousands of older people.



     The Bradford Society is one of the largest and oldest in the country offering different levels of housing need for the elderly within its five houses.  It was founded in 1960 and by 1971 had extended to Shipley.  In 1996 it merged with the Pudsey Society adding an additional house.  Since 1996 the Society has acquired three further properties; Kirkview in Shipley, Woodview in Saltaire and Leylands in Heaton.   The Society plays an important role in providing housing for the elderly in the local area.

The Abbeyfield Aim...

     The Abbeyfield aim is to provide private accommodation for the elderly to enable them to continue to live in the neighbourhood with the support of a local group of kindly people and the friendship of their fellow residents.  Our accommodation offers different levels of service enabling elderly residents to receive continuity according to their changing needs.
