Pathways Project

Construction of the STEPS Pathways Project started in April 2016 and is one of the most exciting developments in STEPS Group Australia’s 30 year history. The Project will allow young people with disabilities the opportunity to live independently in specially designed homes with a life skills Pathways Program to be delivered on site and 24 hour a day support on hand. The Program will teach hundreds of participants the skills they need to live in their own home and make decisions and choices about the way they want to live.

Major Sponsor Murphy Homes

Ben Murphy, his sister Brooke Bastien and father Leigh Murphy, of Murphy Homes are donating a significant amount of time and resources to build the Pathways Project at Caloundra, a live-in training home for young people with disabilities to learn the skills to live independently.

“STEPS Charity cannot thank Murphy Homes and the generosity of local contractors and suppliers enough. Murphy Homes have been instrumental in moving the project forward and we would be nowhere near starting if it wasn’t for their expertise and support in making it a reality,” Carmel Crouch Managing Director STEPS Group Australia said.

The family and their team have worked hard to bring together many of their loyal subcontractors, who are contributing thousands of dollars in time or resources to make the project a success.

Just like a lot of the tradespeople and suppliers supporting this project, Ben said the family wanted to get involved because they genuinely felt it was their responsibility to give back to the community, which has given them so much over the past 30 years.

“Whether it’s disability, injury or illness, there’s not one person who hasn’t been affected by it. What you and I can do and what people with disabilities can do are at times worlds apart, so we say make a difference when you can – your life’s not that bad,”

Ben Murphy, General Manager Murphy Homes.
