We are delighted to be working with Kleidon Masterbuilt Homes to build two new houses designed specifically for People living with a disability in Bundaberg. The houses will come under the Supported Independent Living model and will become home for five residents.

Safe and secure homes for People with disability

People with disabilities want quality, affordable housing where they can be part of a small community, feel safe and secure and have the necessary support they need to live a full and happy life and reach their full potential. A place they can call “HOME”.

Families want peace of mind knowing their loved ones are safe and happy.

People with disabilities and mental health issues are amongst the most vulnerable in our community. There is a significant risk that these people, without assistance, could face homelessness. This is because of barriers finding accommodation due to lack of income, lack of quality/affordable housing and potential discrimination in the rental market.

Partnering with Kleidon MasterBuilt Homes,

“It takes a village to raise a child” is an African proverb which means that an entire community of people must interact with children for those children to experience and grow in a safe and healthy environment.”
This is the environment we aim to create in all of the Carinbundi Supported Independent Living homes.

….a circle of friends, family and support staff working together to ensure all of the residents have the opportunity to reach their full potential and lead meaningful lives as valued members of their community.

The Carinbundi Foundation wants to build houses that become homes where residents are free to be themselves, where they feel safe and secure and can share with like-minded friends.

We want these homes to be close to community amenities where residents can visit their local shops, post-office, newsagent and cafes and become integral members of their community. We want the community to know the residents by name and we want the residents to know they are valued members of their own community.
