A GROUP of Mansfield parents of intellectually disabled young adults is in urgent need of help.
Currently there are four or five young adults aged 20 to early 30s with cognitive impairment being cared for by ageing parents in their homes.
These young people have voiced their desire to move out of home and live semi-independently (supervised) in their own community.
A project to support this group in shared accommodation has been launched with the aim of gaining for them further independence.
So the search has begun to find a benefactor or organisation that could help finance the purchase of a home in which these young people could share.
And the parents have already found that suitable home in Mansfield, close to the Day Services Mansfield Campus where these young adults undertake programs.
