CLARO Aged Care and Disability Services will soon open its doors to new homes geared to accommodate people living with disabilities.

Claro and Robinson Projects have partnered to deliver two high-quality houses with in-house supports for people living with a disability in Beaudesert.

The latest development in Boundary Street will open by the end of February.

The house has five units with a kitchen, lounge, bedroom and spacious bathroom. They have been purpose built for wheelchair access and also provide accommodation for 24-hour carers.

"We're really proud of our partnership to deliver high-quality, purpose-built housing for people with support needs living in Beaudesert," said executive general manager for Claro Antonia Albanese.

Claro national accommodation specialist Leigh Hearl toured the Boundary Street house with accommodation manager Femi Adeniyi this week.

She said the site provided independent living and was selected for special disability accommodation due to the growing number of people living with a disability in the region.

Robinson Projects secured the contract to build the accommodation under the federal government's National Disability Insurance Scheme.

"Robinson Projects will develop the market leading supported disability accommodation, and Claro will provide the supports at the properties, while also providing seamless access to a range of allied health care services," Ms Albanese said.

"This will enable customers to have more convenience and choice in their own house. Supports will be seamless and draw on best practice service delivery approaches."

When the project was launched in June last year, Scenic Rim MP Jon Krause said the accommodation was important for the community.

"It will go some way to filling a gap in our local supported accommodation for people with impaired mobility.

"It is notable that it is to be built by the private sector and then be utilised under the NDIS," he said.
