Congratulations to Kirsty Hale, who is coming to the end of her first week as Deputy Manager of Abbeyfield House in Redland after a much-deserved promotion.

Kirsty first came to Abbeyfield as a carer for some residents at our Redland and Henleaze houses, and started a permanent position in 2015 at the charity’s house in Hanham. She later moved to Abbeyfield House in Henleaze and then started as Night Support at our Redland house. Says Kirsty, “I have always loved meeting, and¬†getting to know, our residents. It’s a real feel-good job. I’m really excited to take on this new opportunity at our house in Redland: I obviously know the team very well there, and they have all been wonderfully supportive”.
