Empowering marginalized youth and individuals with disabilities to enhance their quality of life and achieve financial stability by creating avenues for property ownership and wealth building.

Angela Bontea CASPA

In an engaging and inspiring TedX-pitch, a speaker from CASPA will showcase an innovative model that supports young people transitioning out of home care and individuals with disabilities. This model goes beyond just providing affordable accommodation; it also creates opportunities for them to own property, generate income and offers comprehensive support to address their unique needs.

CASPA is implementing a groundbreaking approach that harnesses the untapped potential of its prime land location in Lismore, strategically situated in a flood-free zone. Through this innovative initiative, CASPA is developing affordable housing that caters to the specific needs of two distinct groups: individuals with significant disabilities and young people transitioning out of government-supported out-of-home care. Within the accommodation complex, CASPA has also dedicated a portion of the land to establish a versatile youth centre. This multifunctional space not only provides a safe and welcoming environment for up to 30 young people but also offers facilities for home schooling and studying for university. By creating such a space, CASPA aims to support and nurture the educational journey of these young individuals, empowering them to reach their full potential. Moreover, CASPA’s development includes a restaurant that plays a pivotal role in the project’s overarching vision. This restaurant not only serves as a culinary hub but also acts as a platform for employment for young people and people with disabilities. By providing apprenticeship opportunities in the hospitality sector, CASPA is creating pathways for skill development and career growth, ultimately equipping the youth with valuable professional experience. Furthermore, the development incorporates a nursery that serves a dual purpose: supporting the employment of young people and people with disabilities and fostering a culture of environmental sustainability. This nursery not only provides job opportunities but also promotes the values of sustainability and green living, instilling a sense of environmental responsibility in the community.
CASPA is exploring the concept of shared ownership through a cooperative, where young people and people with disabilities have the opportunity to become co-owners of the properties or businesses where they work.
