More Local Accommodation for People with Disabilities
In March 2015, St John’s Community Care were successful in our application to build homes for people with disabilities in Gordonvale and Taigum.
The Queensland Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disabilities Services will provide St John’s with $2million to develop three, four bedroom homes in Gordonvale, Far North Queensland and two, four bedroom homes in Taigum in North Brisbane.
The capital grants will assist St John’s Community Care to build the homes which will be used to assist elderly parents to secure sustainable living arrangements for their adult sons or daughters with a disability when they are no longer able to care for them.
The homes will be constructed to contain all possible aides to independent living, enabling people to live in the community with minimal support.
Construction of the homes is due for completion in 2017.
