Meet our staff

Our staff run the sheltered houses on a day to day basis, providing two good quality home-cooked meals every day which are served in the dining room.

A voluntary committee is responsible for the well being of our residents and overseeing the houses. Overall responsibility for the Society's activities rests with an Executive Committee of voluntary Trustees drawn from public and private sectors.

Staff and volunteers also provide support and companionship to residents. The staff at our homes are experienced in dealing with elderly people and are very empathetic to their needs.
