Official opening of Emily Crescent

Two of our stunning Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) homes were officially opened on Tuesday by Senator the Hon Richard Colbeck. Emily Crescent in Somerset is home to some of our wonderful residents who generously opened their homes to key stakeholders, sector representatives and the wider public.

These homes combined with the purchase of three properties (2 in Burnie and 1 in Wynyard) allowed Multicap Tasmania to relocate all of our residents at Panorama to more contemporary living environments last year. The development at Emily Crescent represents a significant investment by the Board of Multicap Tasmania and we are delighted with the results we were able to share with the community earlier this week.

Multicap Tasmania CEO, Nigel Hill would like to thank Housing Tasmania, our design team and project managers 6tyo Architecture Surveying Engineering, 2BBuild and Lisa and Matt Dixon, the subcontractors who worked on the site, Waratah-Wynyard Council and in particular Wayne Flint for design work in the initial landscaping at the site, the Board and staff of Multicap Tasmania and the residents and their family members who worked with us through the transition.

Thank you to all who took the time to celebrate these properties, all they offer those who call them home and what they represent in the NDIS National Disability Insurance Scheme environment.
