A united community

Our Kingston Gardens home (Springvale South, VIC) has recently followed the lead of our St Judes home in Narre Warren North, partnering with Wallara to run the café at the home.

A not-for-profit organisation supporting people living with a disability, Wallara will be providing training and employment opportunities for their clients, while creating a lively hub and gathering place for Japara residents, families, staff, and the wider community.

The Wallara group are presently coming in on Tuesdays and Fridays, and our staff and residents have already loved having their enthusiasm and big smiles around the home.
