$4m boost for CDA’s Independent Living Programme

The Child Development Agency’s (CDA) Independent Living Programme has received another boost with a $4 million donation from the British High Commission.



The funds are to assist with the renovation of a cottage at the Homestead Residential Child Care Facility into a transition home for girls preparing to leave state care.



A portion of the funds is also to support the equipping of a computer lab, the home economics area and recreational room at the child-care facility.



The cheque was handed over to Acting Chief Executive Officer of the CD

A Rosalee Gage-Grey by the British High Commissioner David Fitton at a recent ceremony at the facility.



The restoration of the cottage is a project of the Rotary Club of St Andrew, whose members participated in a demolition of sections of the old building in preparation for work to begin.
