Proposed Closure of McCauley Lodge Residential Care Facility, Fresh Hope Care

The HSU has received notification that Fresh Hope Care plan to close the McCauley Lodge Residential Care facility located at Thirroul, see correspondence at this link.

Fresh Hope Care intends to cease operations at McCauley Lodge from the 21st of August 2022.

Understandably, this will be a difficult time for all involved. The HSU will be organising to meet with management in the coming weeks to discuss the closure and how we can support members during this difficult time. 

It is very important that members take time to consider their preferences for the future, including redeployment options and/or redundancy. Members should not feel pressured to make a decision until they have received all of the information and representation.

The HSU will be available to represent members throughout the process. If you have any particular questions or concerns, please email [E-Mail not displayed]. We will only be representing HSU members throughout this process so if you know a colleague who is not yet a member, encourage them to join at or by phoning 1300 478 679.
