Abbeyfield Bungendore gratefully acknowledges the grant of $500,000 in February 2017, under the NSW Government’s Stronger Communities Infrastructure funding.  Following the consultation process, the Council committed to assist in finding a suitable block of land. 

On the twenty-sixth of July 2017 Abbeyfield Bungendore was granted a long term lease over land in Majara Street, for the Abbeyfield House. Council’s Administrator at the time, Tim Overall, readily acknowledged the need for such housing. 



A very warm welcome to the Bungendore  Abbeyfield Australia project.

This project is to build an Abbeyfield House in Bungendore  – a big undertaking to fill a big gap.

You can learn a little about the model and the project in this YouTube video –  Building a house for Seniors in Bungendore Village

Abbeyfield is all about helping those in our community who need it most.
