Where we’re building
We know that community inclusion is key for people to live their best life so we've focused on developing homes that are centrally located, close to shops, transport and services. We've identified areas of need and building long-term housing solutions that promote independence, are accessible and affordable for people with disability. We're engaging with local construction partners when building new homes with locally supplied trades, fixtures and fittings used throughout, wherever possible.
Our 3 year initiative
This financial year (FY20/21), $7m has already been earmarked to develop 15 new purpose-built independent living homes across Queensland.
These first 15 homes will replace 52 beds for our current NDIS customers and generate 17 new bedroom opportunities at brand new properties at the following locations:
- Ipswich – 2 new homes
- Bundaberg – 4 new homes
- Townsville – 1 new home
- Gold Coast – 1 new home
- Toowoomba – 5 new homes
- Sunshine Coast (Noosa) – 2 new homes
Meanwhile, existing homes are being refurbished to the highest possible standards at the following locations:
- Cannonvale (Completed)
- Kawana, Rockhampton (Completed)
- Nambour, Sunshine Coast (Completed)
- Gold Coast
This is just the beginning of our drive to improve the accessible housing situation in Australia. We’re already purchasing land for the next rounds of homes for construction and planning future refurbishments.
