Individual Housing FAQ
1.What funding will I need to live in this type of accommodation?
Most of our Individual Houses are set up as Specialist Disability Accommodation. To be able to live in this type of housing you will need to have Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) funding included in your NDIS package, which is in addition to Supported Independent Living (SIL) funding. At Northcott, we want to work with you in finding and applying for the right funding and will offer you support throughout this process.
2. What types of vacancies do Northcott offer?
We offer individual housing, shared housing, supported living and specialist supported living options. We also look to tailor our housing options to suit the needs of our customers. Please speak to one of our customer service representatives on 1800 818 286 for more information.
3. What if I wish to move into a different house in the future?
This is a lot easier than the process of applying for your new house. Since you will have your SDA funding already setup you just need to find a home that suits your requirements and funding.
