What types of housing is advertised on The Housing Hub?
The housing I want doesn’t exist – what do I do next?
Until this happens, you might consider working with your support coordinator, or your tenancy support worker, to explore other options, such as private rental, or sharing with other people.
I have high support needs, but am not eligible for SDA or IHS. How do I get accessible housing?
People who live in areas that haven’t yet transitioned to the NDIS should use their existing supports to explore housing, or find a housing worker through a local agency to help them.
How do I find a person to share a house with?
As the NDIS rolls out and people with disability experience greater choice and control, they will be able to make decisions about who they want to live with or share a house with. In the meantime, people with disability looking to share housing with another person should still contact their responsible state government department, community housing provider or support coordinator to seek assistance in finding a suitable match.
Over time, as the NDIS roles out and people with disability have more choice and control they will be able to find a person themselves to set up a share house, but in the meantime you will have to contact DHHS, community providers, or support coordinators to help you find the right person for you
