The Manders Villas has provided a secure, independent and community-focused home for up to 20 community members living with a disability since opening on 10 February 2010.
The cornerstone of The Manders Villas is an inviting and inclusive communal hub used by tenants to run recreational programs, engage people living with a disability in the community, and for celebrations and special events. Community organisations including Our Village Kitchen, Our Kitchen Table, Zooz, Access Inc. and Maccabi All Abilities also regularly run programs at the hub.
This shared space supports tenants in enjoying and contributing to a range of community activities and strengthens relationships between Jewish communal organisations.
Jewish Care is pleased to announce that the office of Flying Fox will now also be located at The Manders Villas.
“We’ve had great engagement with the work of Flying Fox from its very inception and we know the great work they do for our community,” said Jewish Care CEO, Bill Appleby. “We support the lives of many of the same people in our community, so this was a natural progression of our relationship.”
Dean Cohen, Founder and CEO of Flying Fox said of the agreement, “Jewish Care has been there supporting Flying Fox from the beginning and we’re thrilled that we can continue to work together to deliver great and innovative services to our community by utilising the office space at The Manders Villas.”
