This online engagement was hosted on YourSAy from 2 July to 31 July 2020. Find out more about the consultation process. Below is a record of the process.
We want your help to shape the legacy of Highgate Park and the future of the supports funded by the trust that owns it.
What’s being decided?
We are deciding the future of the former Julia Farr Centre at Fullarton, known as Highgate Park, and the supports funded by the trust that owns it. The site was established by Julia Farr in 1879 and since then, it has been a residential facility for people with high level physical and neurological disabilities and complex health needs.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has reformed disability services in Australia. In April 2020, the last resident moved out of Highgate Park and the facility no longer operates.
We want to know your thoughts about how the trust can continue to support beneﬁciaries, speciﬁcally those who are unable to live independently without support.
We want to hear from people with disabilities and their families and carers, as well as local residents, interested members of the public and local businesses and communities, to help us decide on options for the trust into the future.
