The Senior Move Partnership (TSMP) formed in 2012. It’s purpose is to provide high quality, sensitive, bespoke, specialist relocation services to old people. We operate throughout England, Scotland and Wales.

A decision was made at the outset that our service would be delivered to the highest standards and be based on the framework of service ethics, safety, good practice and training as promoted through The National Association of Senior Move Managers.

A Senior Move Manager is a person who has extensive training, experience and empathy – this enables them to provide a full range of quality support services for an older person who is downsizing their home in later life. 

In order to provide our quality service, we ensure that no partner or partner employee support a client unless they have passed our vetting and training process.

The Directors are the longest standing members of NASMM throughout Europe. We have completed the full NASMM training (either the Front Door training or Excellence in Senior Move Management (CSMM) training) and have years of experience in helping older people to move home. Our team spends all day immersed in the work of Senior Move Management.

The Directors

Amanda Fyfe

Following 2 years as a CEO for an international logistics company, in 1997 Amanda started PDI Europe a logistics company providing on-demand training materials throughout Europe and through partners in South Africa, USA and Australia.   This company worked with international IT companies such as Intel, PTC and  Looking for a less corporate challenge Amanda first found Senior Move Management whilst working in the US for PDI.   Amanda started Senior Moves Ltd in 2008 with Susan Griffiths and qualified as a senior move manager in the same year.  She later sold PDI Europe in 2012.

Michelle Park

Michelle is a housing professional with over 30 years experience in supporting people with housing issues, including time working within the housing policy, welfare benefits and supported housing fields.  She has worked for the National Housing Federation, local authorities and housing associations. In 2011 Michelle set up the Yorkshire Move Manager Ltd – providing specialist support to older people moving home. Michelle is a Board Member of a Housing Association.

Susan Griffiths

Susan spent her career in logistics management for European and UK IT companies, working in international teams covering both US and European sites.  She had known Amanda for 25 years and loved the idea of the Senior Move Management industry.  Following initial Senior Move Management training Susan further trained as a carer – recognising the need to increase the understanding within the company of older people’s needs.  During a period of caring for older people she gained valuable experience and understanding of forms of dementia and disabilities, and brought this experience back to the team.  She moved permanently into Senior Move Management in 2012.

Why Choose Us?

The Senior Move Partnership difference

Our trained team of Senior Move Managers work on a daily basis with older clients. We only work in the retirement sector.

We are: 

Excellent project managers – with experience and understanding of all elements of the moving home process and of what needs to take place at each stage. This ensures that we help the client to achieve their goal of a stress-free home move. We pride ourselves on delivering a superb service to meet our client’s needs – wherever they live and wherever they are moving to .

Experienced in planning and delivering the physical support required – our clients often need help with the tasks involved with downsizing. They may not be able to reach the top cupboards, or lift heavy items from shelves, they may tire quickly but they want to be involved and remain in control of their move. We work on a one to one basis with our clients, delivering on-site downsizing support. We work hard to understand the concerns of our clients and their families – to make sure we deliver the best and most cost-effective solution for them.

Ready with emotional support – our clients often get to a point in the sale & purchase when they feel overwhelmed by the paper work, the seemingly never ending ‘impossible’ questions that solicitors want answered and start to think it’s just not worth continuing. This is where our ability to provide emotional support is so beneficial and can prevent a lost sale. By working closely with the client, we are aware when things become too much, are happy to make a cup of tea and listen to their concerns and provide copious amounts of reassurance and practical help. We are their support throughout what can be a challenging time.
