Oak Tree House is a not-for-profit venture, registered by the Charity Commission and managed by Trustees from the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).  Its purpose is to provide a caring residential community offering shelter and fulfillment, informed by Quaker values, to Friends and others in their retirement.  It welcomes all, of any faith or none, who value their independence within a peaceful and secure environment.

Designed and built in the late 1960s on the attractive Bournville Village Estate, it is close to local shops and parks with good transport links to other parts of the city of the Birmingham. It is also very near to both Bournville and Selly Oak Meeting Houses, and to the Quaker Study Centre, Woodbrooke.


We are announcing the launch of a new, easy to use, online Directory of useful resources for older people, their families and carers.

If you need help with finding accommodation, learning more about health & care issues, knowing where to go for finance or legal advice, and more, our Directory can quickly point you in the right direction. Download.

Many people are involved in the smooth running of Oak Tree House, from the Warden to the Trustees.  Most of the staff have worked for us for many years, and help to create our friendly community. more
