NRCH Grounds Renewal Project


NRCH’s Grounds Renewal Project, will increase our capacity to improve health & wellness outcomes for our community.

This project will see improvement of our grounds and an expansion of the precinct.

This will increase our ability to provide care, support, and services to all our consumers, clients, and community, and in more outdoor settings.

This project focuses on providing NRCH buildings and the surrounding neighbourhood with better landscaped gardens and with better facilities for growing food, for clients and community to take part in outdoor activities, be outside with nature, in a more relaxed and supported environment.

We will also reclaim underutilised external spaces so we can provide additional services and support to all.
