Streater Place Housewarming

On Thursday 14th March, we were honored to officially open Civic’s flagship development with a housewarming attended by residents and family, Mayor Carmello Pesce, Civic Board members, neighbours and special guests, The Streater Family. The Streater’s were one of the foundational families of Civic when it was established 65 years ago and we are proud to have the Streater’s as part of the Civic story today.

The provision of safe and secure accommodation is essential for wellbeing. It continues to be a major focus for Civic Disability Services. Civic’s origins were in supporting people within the Sutherland Shire and we are committed to ensuring that people with disability can stay within the community, despite the rising costs of housing. While the challenge of affordable and accessible housing persists, Civic continues to make housing and supports a strategic priority. 

Built to Platinum Accessible Housing Standards, Civic’s Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) development offers independent living to five individuals providing an important opportunity to support those with high support needs. 

Civic partnered with NDIS participants in the design and finishes included in the build, which was carefully designed to maximise independence, with 5 semi-independent units sharing 24-hour on-site support. This is the first of many projects Civic plans to undertake to support people with disability to live in the Sutherland Shire.

“Civic has long been committed to improving the availability of accessible housing for those living with disability and other underrepresented populations. I’m thrilled to see our goal come to fruition” says Annie Doyle.

Resident Jack Kelly noted, “Being back home in the Shire is such a gorgeous place to be. It is important to make it (the house) feel like home and not just another disability accommodation. I can feel the attention to detail in the planning of building this place and it has really made me humble to be part of a new chapter with Civic and a new chapter for myself”.

Civic continues to make housing and supports a strategic priority. Civic’s origins were in supporting people within the Sutherland Shire and we are committed to ensuring that people with disability can stay within their community.

This is the first of Civic’s developments, with another taking shape in Miranda delivering affordable and community housing and specialist disability accommodation to those in need in the Sutherland Shire.
