About Us

The West of England Friends Housing Society Limited is an Industrial and Provident Society, legally defined as an ‘exempt’ charity. The Society is overseen by a Board of volunteers, many of whom are Quakers. We are a Registered Social Landlord, a member of the National Housing Federation and are entirely non-profit making.

Avenue House is registered with the Care Quality Commission who are responsible for regulating and inspecting care homes. We are registered to provide accommodation and personal care (but not nursing care), for up to 30 men and women over 65 years of age. Our latest Inspection Report can be viewed here.

Your family and friends are always welcome to visit, and if they wish to stay overnight, there is a twin-bedded guest room in Kirwin House which can be booked for a small charge.

Our care team is led by the Manager and Assistant Manager who are highly skilled, experienced and committed professionals. They take a personal interest in each one of our residents and their families.
