Kenny Ayre celebrates 25 years of service with Bield | Care PR

A DUNDEE housing officer is set to be commended for his 25 years of service with one of the country’s leading housing providers at this year’s annual general meeting (AGM).

Kenny Ayre, 53, will be acknowledged for his years of service and contribution to enriching the lives of older people at Bield Housing & Care’s AGM on Thursday 20th September in Edinburgh.

A craftsman gardener and tree surgeon by trade, Kenny joined Bield after an injury forced him to change his career path. He originally worked as a development manager in Glasgow, before taking secondment roles as a housing officer, leading him into his current position.

Kenny, who is from Glasgow himself, said: “When I originally saw the job advertised, I thought to myself that it would do for a while, but here I am a quarter of a century later.

“I volunteered when I was younger in care, which got me interested. However, I also helped my mother look after my gran when she was ill, which again gave me an interest in the field.

“I really love being a housing officer. I get to deal with both tenant and staff issues. My job keeps me very busy.

“Bield has really helped with my training too. I did a HNC in Social Care with their help back in the day and I’m currently studying for my Level 5 Diploma with the Chartered Institute of Housing.”

When he isn’t keeping busy at work, Kenny takes part in a variety of different activities to keep him active, including hillwalking, jogging and extreme paintballing.

He said: “I try to keep active, I’m not one to sit on the couch and watch TV. I need to be up and moving.”

Bield has been providing high quality housing and related services in Scotland for more than 40 years, promoting a ‘Free to Be’ ethos that allows older people to live independent lives with help on hand.
