Cancer Council SA’s $30 million project will be the home for all South Australians impacted by cancer and will include 120 rooms of supportive accommodation for regional and remote South Australians travelling to Adelaide for cancer treatment.
Supported by a $10 million investment from the State Government and located at 202 Greenhill Road, the organisation’s new, integrated cancer building will bring together accommodation, research, prevention and support to deliver a cancer-free future for all South Australians.
Through this project, Cancer Council SA will be able to ensure that every South Australian impacted by cancer has the support they need across every stage of their cancer experience for generations to come.
This project is expected to support up to 160 jobs, including 83 jobs during construction.
Key highlights include:
- 120 rooms of supportive accommodation to regional South Australians travelling to Adelaide for cancer treatment, designed to accommodate people with a variety of cancer needs and disability access options.
- Cancer Council’s SA’s Information and Support Services, including Cancer Council 13 11 20, to support South Australians across every stage of their cancer experience.
- Access to free counselling from trained professionals.
- Support to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples by empowering them to cut their cancer risk through the Aboriginal Screening Project and Quitskills Program.
- Cancer Council’s evidence-based prevention programs and strategies to empower South Australians to cut their cancer risk.
- A supportive and energising environment to enable Cancer Council SA to speak out on behalf of the community on cancer issues.
- Cancer Council SA’s Behavioural Research Team, which leads the way in applied cancer research and evaluation, while also overseeing the management of Cancer Council’s Beat Cancer Project.
It is anticipated that the project will take approximately 14 months to complete and will commence in first quarter of 2021.
This project is jointly funded by the South Australian Government and privately.
