On Friday 15 December, our Chief Executive Officer Suzi Cowcher was delighted to welcome the Minister For Disability Services Hon Stephen Dawson MLC to tour our new Bradford Views accommodation.
Two years ago we started the process of imagining a new vision for supported accommodation for people with high physical support needs.
On 13 December we welcomed 20 of our valued customers to Bradford Views, just in time for them to spend Christmas in their new homes.
The villas take advantage of new approaches to care, advanced technologies and evolutions in design to create a warm and welcoming home that is fit for now and the future. It supports people’s health and wellbeing, while offering greater independence, choice, control and connectedness.
The design we’ve created has been based on feedback from individuals who previously called Hillroyd home and their families, and we’ve also drawn on learnings from our visits to shared living models in other states, and international reviews.
It’s been a real collaboration between our staff, families, Parry and Whyte Architects, and BGC Construction, as well as our funders.
