Ground Broken On Mercy Connect’s New Supported Living AccommodationFebruary 9, 2021
Mercy Connect is developing a new supported living accommodation, located in Albury NSW. The development will commence in early 2021, with an official ground-breaking ceremony conducted on Thursday 28 January 2021.
The occasion was attended by several key stakeholders including The Hon. Gareth Ward MP, Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services and Justin Clancy MP, Member for Albury.
Working collaboratively with a team of dedicated stakeholders, Mercy Connect has been successful in designing a housing model, which is specifically created to promote the needs of participants, whilst increasing accessibility to facilities, transport, and community inclusion activities.
The development of the design has been an ongoing project, with extensive research and specialised engagement with major stakeholders, to ensure that the housing model meets the requirements of its residents. Following the Mercy ethos, Mercy Connect are committed to ensure that all participants have choice and control in their accommodation requirements.
Architecturally, the innovative model will comprise several one / two-bedroom SDA properties, including a community ‘Social Hub’ which will host a commercial kitchen, lounge / dining and patio area as well as overnight accommodation room, and coffee area. The proposed development will be able to provide accommodation to support up to nine residents.
The Kambora Court development will go a long way to support those that need affordable and social housing in the Albury / Wodonga region, and there is a vital need for this sort of housing in this area.
It is anticipated that the development will be completed by the end of 2021.
