Independent living

For any young person, leaving home is a big step towards independence. Montrose is assisting young adults with a disability to make that step through innovative housing located in Fitzgibbon Chase on Brisbane’s north side.

Two 3-bedroom homes with a 24/7 coordinator and support staff provide a great opportunity for the residents to realise their dreams and aspirations by:

  • Transitioning from life in the family home to supported independent life
  • Empowering them through independent, personal decision making
  • Helping them achieve personal goals such as studying, working or volunteering
  • Providing the opportunity to socialise with friends
