Progress report on North Melbourne Cosy Cottage Project

Crow, Ruth (1981) Progress report on North Melbourne Cosy Cottage Project. unpublished. (Unpublished)


Contains an overview of the North Melbourne Cosy Cottage Project, from its inception until the first three years of the Cottage Project, also considering its future. Cosy Cottage is a small, single-fronted terrace house located within easy walking distance of the Royal Children's Hospital, the Royal Melbourne Hospital and the Royal Dental Hospital. The Cottage is a joint project of North Melbourne community organisations, several Trade Unions which have offices in North or West Melbourne, and is supported by some of the hospital social workers. The Cottage is a "home away from home" for families from the country who need to stay in Melbourne so that a member of the family can attend one of the hospitals or use other services which are only available in the metropolis.
