A new home offering around-the-clock day care, after school care and short or long respite for children and young adults with disabilities, has opened in Green Point.
The house was officially launched by former Gosford Mayor and Newcastle Jets CEO, Mr Lawrie McKinna.
The home was established in collaboration with highly-experienced carer, Ms Cathy Deblaere, to operate as a home away from home under the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
“The utmost care has gone into making this unique home a place of joy and friendship where children will enjoy experience in care, fresh air, proximity to beaches and shops, as well as an opportunity to make new friends,” said Ms Deblaere.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme will cover the costs of stays at the Koolang Rd Cottage.
