A NEW integrated day service facility for older people in Motherwell has taken another step forward after a contract was awarded for the development.

JB Bennett (Contracts) Ltd from Kilsyth was awarded the contract, following a tendering process, by North Lanarkshire Council’s housing and social work services committee.

It will be built on the site of the former Leslie House Care Home on Merry Street.

The facility is part of a multi-million pound, modernisation programme of day services, offering a range of social care and health services for older people with complex needs.
