Housing Options Under The NDIS

When it comes to housing for persons with disabilities, the NDIS has been a game-changer, giving many more alternatives, greater assistance, and the chance to live more independently.

It is critical to understand that only a tiny number of NDIS participants will get NDIS support for housing (specialist disability accommodation).

For the most part, the NDIS will not cover financing for rent or any other form of day-to-day expenditures such as phone, internet, or food.

The NDIS will pay support that allows for independent living on a much more frequent basis.

Participants may now have access to life skills such as cooking, budgeting, and learning to use public transportation.

Preparing for such a relocation might sometimes take many years. It is critical to discuss your long-term goals with your planner and how, where, and with whom you would like to live. You can also reach out to specialist disability accommodation in Melbourne. This may be incorporated into your strategy, with a clear objective of working for more independence.

Help In The Search For A Suitable Home

There are a variety of housing alternatives for you to examine to choose what is best for you. In your plan, you can seek ‘coordination of supports’ to finance a support coordinator to assist you in looking at the many housing alternatives accessible to you.

The NDIS Funds Support Such As:

Building people’s capacity to live independently in the community, improving living skills, money and household management, social and communication skills, and behavioral management.

Home renovations to the participant’s own home or private rental property, as well as in social housing on a case-by-case basis

Personal care support, such as aid with showering and dressing

Help around the house if the participant cannot perform certain duties due to a handicap, such as cleaning and laundry.

Housing & Other Systems-Funded Assistance:

Housing for the social and communal. Social and affordable housing are the responsibility of state and territorial administrations. State/territory government initiatives will assist most individuals in finding inexpensive accommodation in the broader rental housing market, subject to waiting periods.

Homelessness & Emergency Shelter Services

Commonwealth Rent Assistance (previously the Department of Human Services) aids qualified participants with housing costs. The National Rental Affordability Scheme (NRAS) aims to increase the number of affordable rental homes.

The NDIS may also contribute to the cost of housing if the participant requires specialized housing due to their disability.
