Disability homes in Spreyton


Disability support organisation Devonfield has unveiled four new state-of-the-art client homes in Spreyton.

CEO Tanya Kingshott hosted the Gala Day on Friday morning with the units officially opened by Devonport Mayor Annette Rockliff.

“Nak Building Group and architect Lachlan Walsh, both North-West Coast professionals and organisations, have created the next, modern stage of living options for the people living with disability,” Ms Kingshott said.

“The new homes comprise four, three-bedroom units with spacious living and dining areas with bathrooms and laundry.”

Clients will be moving in over next few weeks, making some minor adjustments to suit individual needs.

“This will allow three clients to live together, or two clients with the option of having a friend to stay as a sleepover,” Chair John Blyth said

“The new homes are next stage of the evolution of Devonfield’s accommodation options, which have understandably evolved over our 60-plus year history.

“This is what some of clients want: the ability to live in their own homes independently.”
