The Summer Foundation was pleased to launch three new publications in 2015 which document the learnings from our housing demonstration projects.
The Summer Foundation has launched a new publication, New Housing Options for people with Significant Disability: Design Insights.
If you are designing a house from scratch, renovating a bathroom, kitchen, bedroom or outdoor space you may find some helpful ideas in this report. It sets out key things to consider, with photos, clear diagrams and explanatory notes. It outlines key technology features that can be integrated into universal design to support individual dignity, independence and promote community access.
The report explains our approach of integrating fully accessible housing in mainstream apartment developments. By sharing what we are learning from our first two pilot demonstration housing projects, we aim to encourage others to be part of the solution to the current crisis in affordable accessible housing which is forcing young people into nursing homes.
The Summer Foundation has recently launched a report about its Abbotsford housing demonstration project called Learnings from the Abbotsford Housing Demonstration Project: 2012-2013. This report shows how four organisations from different backgrounds (Summer Foundation, Common Equity Housing Limited and Residential Independence Pty Ltd (RIPL)/ Transport Accident Commission (TAC)) came together, to create change.
