Humberstone House NPC, often referred to as ‘Humberstone’, is a Non-Profit Company which maintains registered Non-Profit Organisation (NPO) and Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) status. Humberstone is permitted to issue Section 18A donation certificates.
The company is managed by a board of directors which is comprised of several executive directors (family members of the residents) as well as several non-executive members to ensure balanced management.
As Humberstone operates a small care home run largely by an active board, it is expected that all parents assist wherever practical and the involvement of siblings, family members and “friends of Humberstone” is also actively encouraged. While Humberstone House is open year-round, families are encouraged to have their children/siblings at home for a few weekends or holidays during the year, especially over the December holiday period.
Humberstone purchased a residential property in September 2013 and opened for residents in November 2013. Humberstone was fortunate to receive two significant donations, the first at the time of purchase and the second a year later which enabled substantial repayment of the bond and an expansion of the house in 2015. At capacity, Humberstone House can accommodate 8 residents and 2 carers.
The house currently has 9 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. Communal areas include a spacious lounge, covered patio, large open plan dining and kitchen area, a separate staff lounge and a spacious lawn.
The house is equipped with a commercial grade, uncapped WiFi with excellent coverage over the entire property as well as a Netflix account.
