New Housing Options Design Insights Report

This report is based on learnings from our housing demonstration projects in Abbotsford, Victoria and the Hunter region of NSW.

It documents the evolving insights about how to design housing to support people with significant disabilities to live in their own apartment with as much independence as possible. Well-located, well-designed accessible and adaptable housing coupled with smart home technology and appropriate support can increase quality of life and independence and has the potential to reduce life-time care costs.

We acknowledge the support of the Colonial Foundation who provided the funding for the creation of the report.
