Something's on the Horizon

Firstly some exciting news, we recently signed a contract for a new Property for the Organisation. The property address is 286-288 Hursley Road, Glenvale. 

The home is situated on 2.5 acres (11000 square meters), has a tennis court and great internal facilities.

We are looking at turning the home into a Supported Independent Living home, targeted primarily at young males and at this stage the house is due to settle in July.

Also, as you can see from the house plans pictured there is a room with a small kitchenette and adjoining bathroom separate from the house which we plan to turn into a Respite room for any of our participants that need accommodation whist family are away or if they wish to see what moving out of home would be like. If this is something that anyone feels they would benefit from please contact the office to discuss.

The Journey Starts Again!

The journey starts again!

2020 has been an interesting year to say the least but due to Queensland’s efforts, The State government are easing restrictions earlier so we are in Stage 2 of the pictured road map.

We have started the HQ group back on Monday’s and Thursday’s. We need to know numbers of participants to abide by current eased restrictions so please contact the office to book in for either of the 2 days.

Although the group is back we still have to abide by strict social distancing and hand hygiene. There are some slight changes at HQ to accommodate this.

Duties would include:

  • Stocking shelves
