Last year alone, our lodges provided more than 33,000 nights of accommodation to regional South Australians travelling to Adelaide for cancer treatment.
For guests, these lodges are more than just a place to stay—they are a place for guests to find their second family in the welcoming lodge community, with social workers providing lodge guests with comfort, support and a friendly face.
A key focus over the past year has been exploring the various options of accommodation that will enable the service to continue into the future.
This year, with the generous support of people like you, Cancer Council SA are embarking on this once in a generation project.
This new facility, built on our existing site at 202 Greenhill Road, will combine research, prevention, information and support services alongside a new benchmark 120-room supportive accommodation facility, all in one location, close to main cancer treatment centres and other treatment providers along with quick access to major transport links.
Work on the $31m project will start in the coming months, with the build targeted for opening in May 2022.
We’ll keep you up to date with this exciting new development as it comes to life, including how you can be part of ensuring that every South Australian impacted by cancer has the support they need for generations to come.
