Abbeyfield Society has appointed David McCullough as its new chief executive.

David will join the older peoples housing and care charity from the 1st August 2017. He joins from the Royal Voluntary Service (RVS) and brings with him a background of experience working across the voluntary sector.

As a organisation founded on the principles of serving local need through volunteer led services, the Abbeyfield movement has operated this successful model since it’s inception more than 60 years ago. David’s understanding of this operating model, his recognition of the important role of volunteers and his successful financial transformation of the RVS, are key to his appointment.

David’s lead will help to support The Abbeyfield Society in continuing to meet the increasing future demands for suitable older persons accommodation and care. His compassionate appreciation of this vulnerable sector of society will strengthen the movements commitment to truly making time for older people, through a dedication to deliver compassionate, person centered care and support.

Abbeyfield offers a range of accommodation from independent living to care homes.
