Charlotte Lloyd, commissioning director at Exemplar Health Care,said: “We’ve worked closely with the Clinical Commissioning Groups and local authorities and are proud to bring this one-of-a-kind facility to South Elmsall

“It will to enable local people who have suffered an accident, or are living with complex needs, to live close to home, regain their independence and everyday living skills, and move back into their homes in the community.

“As well as providing employment opportunities, there are plans in place to help Bennett Court become part of the local community.

“We are working hard to keep nearby schools, residents, and businesses, updated with the work planned on site.

“We welcome any queries that local residents have around our new home – and look forward to being officially part of the community.”
