New accommodation for people with disabilities in Albury

25 June 2012



People with disabilities in Albury will benefit from over $1 million in the 2012-13 NSW Budget to expand and improve supported accommodation.

Minister for Disability Services, Andrew Constance, said the capital investment will go towards the construction of four facilities in the electorate, including:

  • $300,000 for the construction of a five-bed villa;
  • $400,000 for the construction of a five-bed group home;
  • $250,000 for the construction of a five-bed villa;
  • $400,000 for the construction of a five-bed group home;

"People with disabilities should enjoy the same quality of life the rest of us take for granted," Mr Constance said.

"The NSW Government is committed to expanding and improving supported accommodation, providing homes that residents can call their own, allowing them to prosper in their local communities."

"We are determined to improve quality of life outcomes for people with disabilities, and this investment recognises the NSW Government's commitment."

The investment for Albury is part of the $148.5 million committed for capital projects across the state in the 2012-13 Budget.
