Adele House

Adele House provides residential rehabilitation for men who have an addiction to alcohol and other drugs. Its vision is support, recovery and independence for all those affected by addiction.

The Adele House abstinence-based recovery model has a focus on physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing and aims to provide residents with the skills to live an independent life through employment and private accommodation.

In June 2020, construction of a new state-of-the-art facility at Bucca, NSW, with 40 additional beds was completed as part of a landmark partnership with the New South Wales Government. The facility offers a unique drug and alcohol rehabilitation setting, and in partnership with The Salvation Army will be considered best practice for many years into the future.

Adele Training Farm is a social enterprise including a blueberry farm and work skills centre. It provides training and employment opportunities to clients of Adele House, with income generated supporting Adele House operations.

Clients are offered job training and education programs to ensure they are well equipped to reintegrate in the community.

The PAYCE Foundation has been the driving force behind the transformation and expansion of Adele House.

Adele Training Farm is a registered charity and its vision supports two key principles of the PAYCE Foundation’s approach to philanthropy: long term self-sustainability for charities through the generation of social enterprise revenue and support and upskilling of disadvantaged members of the community to ensure they are job-ready and able to become healthy, productive and positive members of our community.
