Disability Housing in Melbourne We Provide Supported Independent Living & Accommodation

Supported independent living (SIL)

When it comes to living independently, having your own space can really make a difference. Living in your own home allows you to develop your daily living skills and create the life that you want for yourself.

Unfortunately, many people with disability are unable to secure housing – especially accessible housing that suits their needs. This is especially the case in Melbourne, where affordable housing options are limited and it can be difficult to find a house, apartment, or unit that supports your lifestyle.

If you want to move out of the family home and live a more independent life, we’re here to help. Whether you want to live in shared housing with other people like yourself or find your own property to call home, we can ensure you have the right support to fulfil your vision.

Ready to refine your independent living skills? Call 1300 228 311 to find out more about our disability accommodation options!

We can assist with:

  • Shared living
  • Short-term accommodation
  • Medium-term accommodation
  • Supported independent living (SIL)
  • Specialist disability accommodation

Our Disability Housing Services

We provide a range of support services to people with disabilities in Melbourne. Our clients come from a diverse range of backgrounds – as such, we provide many options for housing to suit them all.

Accessibility and flexibility are at the core of everything we do. We aim to give you the ability to choose disability housing that perfectly suits your needs and allows you to live your ideal independent lifestyle.

Shared living

If you want a sense of independence while building up your social skills, shared living can be a great option. You’ll move into a property with other residents like yourself and still receive the assistance you need from your dedicated support workers for things like daily tasks, community support, and more.

We can help you find an accessible house with tenants that you will get along with, ensuring that your transition is a smooth one.

Short- and medium-term accommodation

This disability support service is available to provide respite for regular carers, allow participants to build their capacity, or help with the transition to new housing options.

Supported independent living (SIL)

For those who want to live in their own home but require a little assistance – either on a daily basis or with certain aspects of their routine – we offer Supported Independent Living (SIL) services. This includes a number of supports, including:

  • Household tasks (Cooking, cleaning, shopping, budgeting, etc.)
  • Daily personal care (Mobility, meal prep and eating, hygiene, etc.)
  • Travel to appointments, community events/activities, meetings with friends or family
  • Leisure activities or hobbies
  • Engagement with the community and social groups. For those who want to live in their own home but require a little assistance – either on a daily basis or with certain aspects of their routine – we offer Supported Independent Living services. 

You can pick and choose whatever services you need to help you live independently.

Specialist disability accommodation

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participants in Australia with high physical support needs or extreme functional impairment may apply for specialist disability accommodation. If required, your NDIA planner will make sure that your individual plan covers this type of accommodation and that you can access funding.

We can help you find (and remain in) disability accommodation that suits your needs. Not only can we help you identify properties of interest, but we also help you with everything you need to get settled in.
