Low Laithes


Old Farm Lane, Wombwell, Barnsley, S73 8SU

Who we are

A residential care facility for younger adults with a learning disability including autism and other complex communication and behavioural difficulties. This venue is part of the Barnsley Safe Places Scheme.


We provide a bespoke residential service that provides high standards of accommodation, personal care and support for adults who have complex care needs, including behaviours that challenge and a learning disability, often in association with autism.

Set in rolling countryside, we are close to the village of Wombwell and Barnsley town centre. We pride ourselves on offering a high quality residential provision and seek to provide the foundations for ongoing, positive progress for people who live here.

At Low Laithes our mission is to enhance the lives of the people we support by focusing on their individual needs, strengths and aspirations. We aim to enable each person to maximise their potential and achieve a progressively more independent and better quality of life; supporting people to get to a place where they have greater choice and control in their lives.

Moving to a new home should be an exciting and positive experience. But before moving in, we need to be as certain as possible that Low Laithes will be a good choice for a person and the best place for them to live. Enquiries, formal or informal, from families and placing authorities that fund placements are always welcome. You can find out more about our referrals and moving in process here.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspects Low Laithes as part of the adult services registered under Hesley Group. Copies of our inspection reports are available via CQC at www.cqc.org.uk. Alternatively, please contact us on our Freephone number 0800 055 6789 for a copy to be posted to you.

The mission statement and values of Hesley Group are embedded within the service we provide at Low Laithes.
