A LOCAL councillor officially opened a supported living service for people with intellectual disabilities last week.

Coun Kevin Osborne, who represents the Darfield ward, led Select Support Partnership’s opening ceremony.

The service has branched out to Barnsley in collaboration with the health and social care team at Barnsley Council.

They provide individual bungalows offering bespoke packages with 24-hour care and support.

A spokesperson said: “Our mission is to provide a home for life to our tenants, creating a warm and nurturing environment where they can truly thrive.

“With a deep commitment to compassion and care, we’re dedicated to supporting some of the most complex individuals, tailoring our services to meet their unique needs.

“Our passionate team is driven by a shared vision of enhancing lives and fostering a sense of belonging.

“Together, we aim to build a brighter future for everyone we have the privilege to support.”

Coun Osborne added: “It was a pleasure to be invited to cut the ribbon at the new office and specialist home in Darfield.”
