We have partnered with Halcorp Developments, a subsidiary company of well-known local developers, Lancini Property & Development, to build accessible housing for young people with high care needs.

Development is proposed to commence in 2018. The partnership is the first step to making a real and viable impact in the Townsville region.

The announcement comes at a vital time for the disability housing sector in Queensland, where the need for age-appropriate housing and care is critically high.

There are currently 2,500 young Queenslanders with high care needs living in inappropriate housing, 318 of those eligible for Specialised Disability Accommodation reside in Townsville.

The development forms part of Townsville’s latest residential development, Brookstone on the Park; an integrated housing community that will include up to 15 dwellings for young people with high care needs. Each dwelling will be equipped with the latest technology and equipment, ensuring the residents can live with independence and dignified care.

Local award-winning builder Martin Locke Homes has also partnered with Youngcare to deliver premium quality housing custom designed and built to suit the individual’s needs. Owner Martin Locke stated that “As a builder, there is immense joy in building a home for a person or family with needs. My team and I are very proud to be partnering with an organisation like Youngcare, who also have a reputation for excellence, but just as importantly a genuine desire to be part of our great Townsville community for the long term.”
