Community partnership: Aspire Support Services

A purpose-built facility for disability day programs

Hume Bank was responsible for funding a new multimillion-dollar, purpose-built facility in Thurgoona designed to provide day programs for people with a disability.

“Just like Aspire Support Services and Kirinari, we are committed to having a positive impact on our customers and their communities. It is projects like this that allow us to have an impact in partnership.” – Stephen Capello, Hume Bank CEO

The first of its kind in the region, the facility provides day programs for up to 80-100 people per day and includes a games room, sensory room, maintenance workshop, staff facilities, half basketball court, landscaped gardens and ample room for future growth. Activities supported include cooking, artwork, music and IT training.

“We recognise the importance of locals supporting locals so have only chosen local businesses and tradespeople to complete this development. It was important to us that any funds required were obtained via a trusted local customer owned bank, so we are delighted to have partnered with Hume Bank on this project.” – Nigel Stone, Aspire Support Services CEO
