Mount Gambier Homes

The Ryder-Cheshire Mount Gambier Home Foundation

Our Foundation was formed out of a desire to provide a caring, 'forever home' for people living with a disability in the community. 

As with all Ryder-Cheshire homes our guiding philosophy is the relief of suffering without discrimination.

The Mount Gambier homes are leased to ParaQuadSA and managed by their service provider HomeCare+.

What we've achieved so far



Thank you Tara Tipsters

The Foundation recently received a $1,000 donation from the Mount Gambier Greyhound Racing Club's Tara Tipsters.

The generous donation is much appreciated and has been deposited in our Next Home Fund.

The Tara Tipsters were established by Kevin 'KD' Douglas to support Mount Gambier charities.

'Can do' attitude made homes a reality

"We sort of pinch ourselves that we achieved it against all the odds.  It was a gap in the accommodation.  It was very time consuming but the end result has been excellent" - parents discussing the early stages of the project.
