The consultation to decide the future of the former Julia Farr Centre at Fullarton, known as Highgate Park, has now been finalised.
A full report was published on 17 April 2021. We have created a consultation report for you to view.
Following the extensive independent consultation, Highgate Park will be sold and any proceeds used to promote greater community inclusion and benefit people living with disability.
More than 360 people were consulted, including people with lived experience of disability from metropolitan Adelaide and regional South Australia, Aboriginal people living with disability, and subject matter experts working in the disability sector.
The future of the trust itself will also be considered to give people with lived experience of disability a greater say in how any funds are spent.
JFA Purple Orange – the non-profit disability advocacy organisation which was formed out of Julia Farr Services – will facilitate a working group which will be consulted through the sale process including exploring the future of the trust.
Thank you to those who provided feedback to help us decide the future for the site, which is owned by the Home for Incurables Trust.
