Cumbria County Council has officially launched a new £3million supported living development for disabled adults in partnership with living developer HBV as well as Inclusion Housing, Lifeways and Morgan Sindall Investments Limited (MSIL). Residents have been warmly welcomed into newly built apartments and bungalows that feature assistive technology.
John Woodcock MP for Barrow-in-Furness said: “This is a remarkable addition to our local community and I’m delighted that the apartments and the assistive technology within them creates the opportunity for people with various kinds of disabilities to live a more independent life.
“The development has a real community feel to it and I’m delighted that my colleagues at the District Council and the County Council have worked brilliantly together to help deliver this scheme in our region.”
Alastair Sheehan, business development director at HBV said: “I’m delighted to welcome new residents to this important development in the community. There’s clearly a need for more of these kind of developments where vulnerable people are given the opportunity to live more independently from their parents or in supported accommodation.
“We are delighted that this site in Barrow provides a fine example of the specialist supported living model and provides a modern and safe environment for people to live their lives independently and with the freedom to manage their own homes, in the manner and dignity that they and all of us deserve.”
