VIDEO: CatholicCare to build disability group homes and housing

On the International Day of People with Disability, the Catholic Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle announced it will build two brand new disability group homes and an additional 22 affordable housing units in Crebert St, Mayfield, to open in July 2014.

 

The purpose-built houses will each offer supported accommodation in a group home setting for 4-5 people with disability and will exist as part of a community housing model where 22 affordable housing units will be built and made available to low to middle income earners working in 'key worker roles', on the same site.

 

NBN Television were amongst a number of media present at the new site for the official announcement from Bishop Bill Wright, Vice Chancellor Administration of the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle, Sean Scanlon and Director of CatholicCare, Lisa Short.
