This grant will enable Wintringham to realise a $10 million capital project to provide additional and much needed social housing units in Shepparton, a co-located site with an existing Wintringham housing development and support service office.
The 32 new units will provide permanent housing exclusively available to members of the local community (Goulburn Valley region) who are over 50, homeless or at risk of homelessness and assessed as needing priority housing. Each until will incorporate universal design principles and neet the 7-start energy rating.
The project highlights what can be achieved through partnership and common goals between philanthropic, the Victorian Government, other concerned organisations (e.g. Australian Nursing and Midwifery Foundation, Victorian Branch) and specialist service providers such as Wintringham.
