The aim of Specialised Disability accommodation is to enrich the quality of life of people who live in them. On a daily basis, the role of all disability support staff is to provide skilled support to use every available daily opportunity to actively promote people:

  • Participation in household and community activities
  • Relationship building with other people
  • Choice in all aspects of decision-making that affects them
  • Dignity and respect in all aspects of their lives
  • Skills that are used and developed to create achievement.

Vacancies in our houses are advertised through the Vacancy Management Hub.

There are two components to funding for Accommodation:

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is help with and/or supervision of daily tasks to develop the skills of participants to live as independently as possible. These are the supports provided to a participant in their home, regardless of property ownership, and can be in a shared or individual arrangement.

Assistance provided to a participant will be included as part of their NDIS Plan depending on the level of support they require to live independently in the housing option of their choice.

Nadrasca support includes assistance with:

  • Home living activities such as housekeeping, shopping, cooking, household budgeting.
  • Using community resources (for example banks, shops public transport, 
    recreational activities and attending medical appointments).
  • Using aids and equipment for mobility and/or independence.
  • Decision making, problem solving, conflict resolution.
  • Managing emotions personal responses.
  • Building and maintaining community connections and personal relationships.
  • Using services in the community to enable participants to live an ordinary life.

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) refers to accommodation for participants who require specialist housing solutions to assist with the delivery of supports that cater for their extreme functional impairment and/or very high support needs.

SDA does not refer to the support services, but the homes in which these are delivered. SDA may include specialist designs for participants with very high needs or may have a location or features that make it feasible to provide complex or costly supports for independent living.
