Responsibility

The Board is responsible for the buildings and infrastructure, and has a responsibility to ensure residents are cared for in a manner that reflects the philosophies of our Founders. A Parents' Committee liaises between the residents and the service provider. Parents are also represented on the Board.

Homes

Our two purpose-built homes on the corner of Mulga Street and Willow Avenue each provide studio-style accommodation for five people with a range of disabilities.

Residents receive ongoing assistance from support workers and participate in vocational and recreational activities in the community.

The objective is to provide a level of independence within a 24 hour per day care structure.
