[lead]The Summer Foundation is pleased to launch the 2015/2016 Annual Report.[/lead]
The Summer Foundation is ten years old this year, and while there have been many rewarding achievements in this time, there are still many challenges to overcome as we work to resolve the issue of young people living in nursing homes. The Summer Foundation would like to thank all of the people and organisations that have supported us, particularly in this last year.
Highlights of the last year include:
- Our ongoing work in NDIS trial sites where we connected 73 young people living in nursing homes to the NDIS
- The launch of our second housing demonstration project in the Hunter region of NSW featuring 10 new apartments that are accessible and have smart home features
- Continuing to empower people with disability to tell their stories. This is fundamental to developing solutions and changing systems.
