Group Home for Disabled Teenagers

Living In Care

Group Home for Disabled Teenagers was a project brought to Melocco and Moore by Bridge Community Housing.  The brief was to design and document alterations to a 1930s house in Ashfield for the Department of Ageing, Disability and Home Care (DADHC).

The existing house was renovated to provide a new and appropriate group home for 4 disabled teenagers currently living in aged care facilities. Group homes provide people with the support they need to increase their independence, achieve personal goals and to live full and productive lives. They are located within a local community and foster friendships and a sense of connection.

This was an incredibly worthwhile project that had a very successful outcome. We hope that it is one of many to follow.
