Ramsay Court Accommodation Facility
Yes, it's true. We have purchased (College Lease) the old Sunraysia Community Health Services Ramsay Court facility.
As of August 2016 Planning Permits have been approved, so over the next six months or so we will be hard at work preparing for the opening of this new site.
The facility will provide a mix of short and medium term accommodation for refugees & asylum seekers being settled in our region. This will support new community members with their initial accommodation as they completing with initial orientation to our regions and while looking for provide rental accommodation in our region.
Already one of our Work for the Dole teams are building furniture to be moved to the new facility, including using reclaimed timber from fruit bins. There is also lots of renovations to go ahead at the facility.
Hopefully in early 2017 everything will be up and running
