  • Salary: voluntary position on Board

Join our Board and make a difference to the lives of older people.


Abbeyfield & Wesley is a member society of the Abbeyfield movement.  Since the movement’s beginning back in 1956,  providing affordable housing and support for older people has been at Abbeyfield’s heart.

Across Northern Ireland, Abbeyfield & Wesley currently has seventeen supported sheltered houses, three sheltered housing schemes and a residential dementia care home. But we’re not just about bricks and mortar – fundamental to what we do is the recognition that overcoming loneliness and insecurity can make all the difference to an older persons well-being and quality of life; and that local people have an essential part to play in helping older people in the community.  Now in a post -covid recovery phase and looking to the future, Abbeyfield & Wesley is currently recruiting for new Board Members.

We especially welcome expressions of interest from those with experience in the fields of housing and/or care.  Insight into the lived experience of older people and residents would also be a valuable asset for our Board. You do not need to have previous Board Member experience to apply.

Abbeyfield & Wesley is a housing association, Industrial and Provident society and registered charity.       We are governed by a Board of voluntary trustees and the Board meets at least four times per year.

Further information about our Board recruitment process, together with our Board recruitment pack, is available from our website

The closing date for this round of applications is 4:00 PM on Friday 11th November 2022

Interviews will take place in person at a mutually convenient time at the end of November.
