The incredible, ongoing generosity of the South Australian community for over 90 years is critical in enabling us to progress with this exciting new $30 million project.
The purpose-built facility will be the home for Cancer Council SA’s research, prevention and support programs and will include 120 rooms of supportive accommodation for regional and remote South Australians travelling to Adelaide for cancer treatment.
Centrally located at the current Cancer Council site on 202 Greenhill Road, the building will include:
- Multiple communal kitchen facilities where they can prepare meals just like at home.
- Onsite evening dining for nights when they are too tired to cook.
- Dedicated quiet breakout spaces for when they need a moment of rest or reflection.
- An activity hub where guests can socialise with each other and volunteers are on hand to make a cup of tea or have a friendly conversation.
- Access to onsite Social Workers and counsellors to help navigate the bumps along a cancer journey and lend a supportive ear.
- A dedicated information and resource area to provide answers to questions and reassurance they are not alone in their experience.
- Culturally appropriate accommodation for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
- Dedicated family rooms and play spaces to ensure the whole family is supported.
- Onsite free parking and shopping facilities within walking distance.
- Free transport from accommodation to treatment .
