Why we are looking?

The establishment of our first community at Laetare Court in Moonah has provided positive outcomes.

A growing need

There is ongoing and growing demand (emphasised with the introduction of the NDIS) for accommodation for people with acquired brain injury and/or neurological conditions.

Many of these people are forced to reside in unsuitable accommodation, such as aged care facilities.

Our innovative model, which focuses on maximum independence within a supportive community, is structurally different from the group home scenario and has received commendations from all tiers of government.

What we are looking for

Our research has identified the following criteria for a new development:

  • a level site, suitable for wheelchairs and within easy access of a community/ shopping centre;

  • ready access to public transport and services;

  • a safe/secure environment;

  • an environment which encourages community interaction and interconnectedness;

  • an environment which builds on and supports informal networks, and helps remove feeling of social isolation; and,

  • an environment which promotes individual’s respect, integrity and wellbeing.
