Grandview St

Evolve Housing

A joint partnership between Evolve Housing and Northcott, this building is the first to be awarded the Platinum Performance Level compliance rating under the SAIF initiative.

“This innovative livable housing design and supported housing model gives a person with disability a life of independence and dignity, improving their chance of employment and involvement within the community.”  says Andrea Galloway, the chief executive officer of evlove housing.

7 Grandview St includes innovative features that help remove the physical and social barriers associated with disability. The house is environmentally and energy efficient and fitted with ajustable kitchen bench tops and wall cupboards enable easy access, while common meeting areas can be used as a social meeting places. Located in a typical suburban street to promote social inclusion, these self contained residences maximise individual privacy, whilst ensuring they are supported to live safely.

Residents can also access support from Northcott's Computer Assistive Technology Service (CATS), which assists people with disabilities who may need support in areas like communicating or using household controls, to maximise their independence. An example being software and hardware that reads text in a generated voice for those visually restricted.

Northcott will provide drop-in support to residents, which will include a range of formal services (e.g. personal care, domestic assistance, therapy, living skills education and case management), but there is also an innovative component which involves the use of informal carers via the university students who will be residing in the building at a subsidised rent.
