The philosophy and culture of the Fairfield Trust is embodied in the history of the Trust and the generosity of its benefactor, the late Reverend Alex Dick . For further details click here.
The day to day management of the properties is carried out by Belmont Property Management with a member of staff visiting the scheme twice a week available to deal with residents’ queries.
The rents and service charge for the accommodation and the use of the amenities are kept as low as possible. However, if residents have insufficient income or savings, the Trust will help residents to apply for Housing Benefit to cover the costs.
