New Disability Centre Opens in Southport

A new day centre has been opened in Southport, offering new opportunities and support for those in the region with disabilities.

Disability Services Manager Tracy Davis officially opened the Cerebral Palsy League of Queensland's (CPLQ) Support in the Community Centre on her visit to the Gold Coast, saying that it would be of huge benefit to people with special needs.

"This new centre means people with physical disabilities can join in recreation, learning and life skills programs held in the accessible multi-purpose rooms," she said in an August 27 statement.

There will be a broad selection of programs available, such as computer skills, literacy and numeracy and cooking.

According to Ms Davis, the Queensland Government played a huge part in the development of the centre, contributing $500,000 towards in construction.

In addition, it provides continuous funding to CPLQ, totalling almost $50 million this year.

The opening of the new centre will definitely be of interest to anyone looking to move into Southport and Surfers Paradise property.

It is just one example of the diverse range of facilities available in the region and highlights the state government's contribution to the wellbeing of its citizens.
