Youngcare Apartments Sydney
The Youngcare Apartments Sydney were launched in November 2012 and will be Youngcare’s third housing project to date, following successful developments in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast. It is a $3.2 million initiative that promises to impact the lives of young people with high care needs right across Australia by demonstrating real solutions to challenging problems.
The project is about creating a replicable, consumer-driven Model of Housing. That is, a building design that caters to the physical and medical needs of young people in a dignified and age-appropriate way; a building that feels like home – not a medical facility or institution. And it’s about creating a best practice Model of Care so that young people can get the medical, social, and lifestyle support they truly need.
The Youngcare Apartments Sydney will be achieved with the support of a leading team of experts including Griffith University, St Vincents and Mater Health, Cox Rayner Architects, Aurecon and Lend Lease Constructions; partners that share Youngcare’s vision for a best practice housing model which can be adopted by others in the disability housing sector.
The design phase is well underway with support from various experts and construction of the Sydney Apartments will commence in 2013 with residents moving in to their new homes in 2014.
