Project Independence disability housing model under construction in Harrison

An Australian-first housing model for people with a disability will be an invaluable Christmas gift for 20 people this year if progress remains on track.

The first sod was turned at Project Independence’s 10-place Harrison site on Friday to mark the beginning of construction, which should be completed in October.

Construction of the project’s Latham site, which will house 10 more residents, will begin in about four weeks.

Project director Glenn Keys expected both developments to open their doors to 20 people with a disability and two live-in co-ordinators, one for each site, by the festive period.
