Housing and Supported Independent Living

Our Housing and Supported Independent Living service supports people with disability to:

  • Live independently
  • Develop their skills in everyday tasks
  • Be a part of their community
  • Make friends
  • Receive tailored support in personal care or healthcare in their own home

What we can offer

Our Housing and Supported Independent Living team offers a range of services to assist people with disability who wish to live independently or who are developing skills to live in their own home or in supported accommodation.

Northcott has a long history of providing accessible, modified accommodation for people with disability. Our range of housing options includes:

  • shared housing where people can choose who they wish to live with and how their supports (such as personal care, healthcare, daily assistance) are structured and delivered
  • supported independent living where a person lives in their own home and receives support to assist with everyday tasks or getting out in the community
  • individual housing for those who wish to live independently with some drop-in support when they need it
  • specialist supported living for people who have more complex medical support needs and may require specialist nursing staff as part of their support team

For short-term breaks or temporary housing needs (such as while you are waiting for modifications to your home or permanent accommodation), we also provide short to medium-term disability accommodation services – also known as Centre Based Respite.

Funding information

If one of your current goals is to live independently or in supported accommodation in the near future, it is important you have, or are applying for, the correct funding from the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Many of Northcott’s housing options require Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) funding in addition to Supported Independent Living (SIL) funding.

If living independently is a long-term goal or something you are exploring for the future, please contact us to discuss how we can best meet your needs.
