Disability supported accommodation

Disability Services supported accommodation is targeted at people with a disability with the highest support needs.

We fund community service organisations to provide a range of supported accommodation services including group homes and community residential units for people with a disability.

Supported accommodation services are provided under the Disability Act 2006.

The support is based on individual needs and promotes:

  • Community participation
  • Relationship building
  • Skill development and maintenance.

What support is available?

  • Support for people to live in their own home, or the family home through an Individual support package
  • Outreach support to assist people to live more independently in their own home
  • Support for younger people at risk of admission to residential aged care
  • Shared supported accommodation - targeted at people with a disability that have the highest support needs, which includes rostered support.
