About Dale Cottages
The Dale Cottages story is one rich in values of care, equity, dignity, innovation, participation, volunteerism and hard work. As a Not For Profit Organisation, it is no surprise that these values continue to underpin our work since 1957. In 1956 the community of Armadale and Kelmscott recognised the need to provide accommodation for elderly residents. From the first public meeting it was clear that the community of Armadale and Kelmscott would make this project happen and to this day we hold fast to the principal that Dale Cottages is an organisation that values all community members. In October 1959 the first duplex opened in John Street Armadale. Since then our organisation has grown in its mission to care for all community groups.
We Currently Provide:
We continue to be an independent organisation guided by a Board made up of community representatives. The result has been the continuous provision of accommodation and an ongoing recognition that care, choice, equality and inclusivity are essential elements in service delivery.
