NEW housing built in Frankston will offer some independence to younger people with disabilities who have previously lived in aged care nursing homes.
The housing in Lardner Rd was officially opened last Friday (16 October) thanks to an innovative collaboration between Monash University, Mission Australia Housing, the Summer Foundation and disability service provider Yooralla.
HUNDREDS of Western Sydney children from low income homes were treated to a school holiday extravaganza at Blacktown International Sportspark last week.
The family fun day featured special guests from the GWS Giants and entertainment including bubble soccer, tug-o-war, AFL and hip hop dance workshops. Mission Australia Housing and Evolve Housing worked together to organise the day.
MA Housing, in partnership with Monash University's Occupational Therapy Department, Summer Foundation and Yoralla has developed innovative housing aimed at reducing the number of younger people with a disability who live in aged care nursing homes.
