Some people living with disability have very high support needs. This could mean they need to live in a specially designed house. We call this specialist disability accommodation.
Most participants don’t need to live in specialist disability accommodation, and there may be other home and living supports that are more suitable. To work out if you’re eligible for specialist disability accommodation, we’ll get you to complete a Home and Living Supports Request Form. We use this information to explore whether specialist disability accommodation will work for you, and whether it will work with your other supports.
If you’re eligible for specialist disability accommodation, we’ll work out your specialist disability accommodation budget.
Different types of home and living supports will suit different people. Specialist disability accommodation is only one of many support options. There may be other home and living options that better suit your needs and preferences.
