Abbeyfield Barrow Society was founded in 1967 with two houses, and moved to purpose built accommodation at Millennium House in 2000.
With local funds initially, the Society owned two mature houses in which it created serviced homes for older local people. When the upkeep of those became too expensive the decision was taken to close and sell them and to reinvest the proceeds, together with grants from national and local government and generous support from benefactors, to buy a new property and adapt it for the needs of older people.

The sheltered house at Millennium House opened in 2000. Here we were able to create purpose built accommodation for older folk who wanted to live an independent life but were unable or did not wish to maintain their own home.

We aim to provide a secure and stimulating environment in which our residents may enjoy companionship without losing their own privacy. Our residents are treated as individuals and their own wishes and needs are discussed and respected from the outset.
