Take a look at our new £3M supported living development in Cumbria

MARCH 11, 2019

Residents of a new £3m specialist supported living scheme for disabled adults in Cumbria were warmly welcomed into their new apartments by developers and local officials including the Mayor, Leader of the Council and Local MP.

Sixteen new apartments and two bungalows which have incorporated assistive technology, have been built at the site of the former church on Roose Road in Barrow-in-Furness. The site is exclusively for local people with physical or learning disabilities.

The scheme, called Church Place, was delivered by award-winning specialist supported living developer HBV.

John Woodcock, MP for Barrow-in-Furness, officially opened the scheme. He also planted an apple tree with the original engraved spade he used to dig the first sod of earth at the ground-breaking ceremony in 2017. John 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.
