Our House “makeover” to improve disability services
Carinity Communities – Our House will be undergoing major renovations from July to August in a makeover to boost services for disability clients.
Carinity Client Services Coordinator Maggie Poole said Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services will be conducting a refurbishment to ensure that the building best meets the needs of people with a disability and their families.
“The major modifications will allow Carinity to better utilise the space and continue to grow our services to people with disability,” Ms Poole said.
“Our House gives people with a disability and their carers one on one support and caters to individual’s needs. We offer disability respite, life skills development, social activities, support groups and in home support.”
“The building works include upgrading the bathroom and kitchen, reconfiguring walls and corridors and building new paths and ramps for improved access.”
“The good news is there will be no disruption to the current services we provide. A temporary office has been set up at 14 Fulham Street in Toogoolawah which will serve as a drop-in centre while overnight respite will move to Camp Duckadang outside Linville.”
“So it’s business as usual for us, our phone number is still the same and we will still be happy to assist anyone who drops into our Fulham Street office,” Ms Poole said.
