Summary
  • "Kew Residential Services (KRS), formerly known as Kew Cotteges, was the oldest and largest institution for people with intellectual disabilities in Australia. It's closure in April 2008 was a triumph and a key strategy of the Victorian Government's State disability plan ... . Most of the KRS residents were relocated to small group homes in the community across metropolitan Melbourne and rural Victoria. One hundred residents moved to 20 group homes in the new commercial housing development built on the 27-hectare KRS site, which were 'integrated into the suburb on site' rather than forming a cluster development. Professor Christine Bigby ... led the Making life good in the community research ... to examine outcomes for KRS residents who made the move to the community. Completed in 2008, the qualitative study examined life in five on the new group homes, investigated the concept of 'homlieness' and explored the role of the house supervisor. .. This report now sets out the findings from the large-scale outcome survey that aimed to provide statistical indicators of changes to the quality of life of the former KRS residents who moved to group homes in the community."--Executive summary.
