Parkside are also committed to upholding the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people and acknowledge and respect the cultural diversity of all the people we support.

Executive Director/Business Manager
END OF AN ERA
Today Parkside have announced that after much deliberation the Board of Directors have made the difficult decision to close Tower Road. During the past two years the NDIS landscape has changed and many participants have chosen to receive tailored community based programs rather than traditional community based programs. This decline in participants accessing Tower Road means this venue is no longer viable. Parkside needs to move with this change to ensure we continue to provide quality, flexible program choices for the people we support. It is our intention to vacate Tower Road by Friday 29 September 2023, with the last day of support for participants to be Friday 15 September 2023. We will be actively working with participants and staff impacted by the closure to assist them transition to other program areas/sites within Parkside. If you have any concerns or questions please give us a call.
