Over $30 million investment in accessible housing for people with disability

30 November 2012



Minister for Disability Services Andrew Constance has celebrated Achieve Australia’s 60th Anniversary and acknowledged its commitment to providing housing for people with disability.

“Achieve is set to make the largest single investment by a non-government organisation in disability housing in NSW history,” Mr Constance said at the organisation’s celebrations at the Epping Club in Sydney’s northern suburbs last night.

“$30 million will be invested in supported accommodation for people with disability, providing modern, state-of-the-art facilities for the residents.”

Anne Bryce, Chief Executive Officer at Achieve acknowledged the support of the NSW Government throughout the three-year development approval process.

“The sale of our large residential centre site will provide the catalyst for our organisation to provide more contemporary housing options for people with disability,” Ms Bryce said.

“The NSW Government has actively supported Achieve Australia throughout this three-year development approval process and we will invest over $30 million in housing for people with disability in NSW at no cost to tax payers or the Government.”

“We will also receive at least 15, custom designed, fully accessible 1-2 bedroom apartments for people with disability in the planned on-site development.”

Achieve is a community based not-for-profit organisation which supports over 500 people with disability or experiencing disadvantage in the Northern Sydney region.

Its services are flexible, follow a person-centred philosophy and encourage independence.
