Description

The Opening Doors Project is a home and 2 units, purpose built for people with disability who require support to live independently. Both one bedroom units will be designed and fitted with assistive technology to maximise independence for people with a physical disability. The units are adjacent to a home that will provide 24 hour support to 3 people with disability.

Community Living & Respite Services (CLRS) is inviting expressions of interest from people who may be interested in living in the units, to be built by CLRS in Maiden Street Moama.  

The selection process will consider the support needs, NDIS funding accessible by the person and individual circumstances. 

The costs associated with living in the dwelling will include a rental and utilities component. Staff support costs, if required, will be negotiated individually. 

It is anticipated that the units will be completed late 2019.
