Suitable and appropriate supported housing is one of the greatest areas of unmet need for people with disabilities in Australia. Currently, there are 28,000 young people with disabilities enrolled in the NDIS that are searching for an appropriate place to call their own home.
This is a crisis for young people with high care needs throughout Australia. Young Australians are being left behind in aged care, hospital rooms, rehabilitation centres – inappropriate accommodation that is not suitable for their age or care needs. The crux of this crisis is the lack of opportunity for each person living with disability to choose their own pathway due to limited options.
We are creating a more inclusive Australia by empowering the development industry, government and community to work together and challenge the way society views disability. We are redefining integrated living, creating a future where every young person with high physical support needs feels at home — and free to live, equally — in their community.
