For people that have more complex medical support needs in addition to Specialist Disability Accommodation, we offer Specialist Supported Living housing.
Housing assistance for adults with disabilities
Our specialist supported accommodations include access to specialist nursing staff as part of the support team.
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.
