We offer a range of accommodation options designed to meet your individual needs.
Supported Independent Living (SIL)
Supported Independent Living enables you to live as independently as possible, with the housing option and level of support that suit your needs. SIL can be individual or shared accommodation and we work closely with you to find a home (and housemates) in the right setting. We work with you and your NDIS plan to find accommodation that is the right fit for you.
Possability has accommodation options for people with complex and exceptional support needs.
See our current residential vacancies available in the section below.
This style of accommodation is a good fit for people who want to live independently and need some support to do so. Support might be required with personal care, developing life skills and decision-making. This option allows increased independence and community engagement. At some sites there is access to shared common areas and wellbeing checks.
Transition to independent living
We offer short-term accommodation with opportunities that build and develop your skills and confidence in a safe and supported environment. We focus on skills that will prepare you to take the next step to living independently.
Possability can also assist by exploring available accommodation options in your local community and coordinating tenancy agreements.
Where is accommodation available?
We provide accommodation services across Tasmania and some regions of Victoria. While vacancy rates of existing houses are limited, we can establish new shared housing arrangements for people who have been allocated funding for this support.
How do I (or my family member) access this service?
NDIS Participants with this service in their Participant Plan are welcome to contact us to discuss options.
If you are not yet a participant in the NDIS, contact your Local Area Coordinator to be assessed. More information about eligibility can be found on the NDIS website.
Possability also offers services to people funded by other means or who are self-funded.
I have a NDIS Participant Plan. What should I do next?
Contact Possability on 1300 067 842 and ask to speak to one of our Service Planners. They will then arrange a time to meet to discuss your options.
Your NDIA Local Area Coordinator may have provided you with a list of other service providers that you can also contact.
What does it cost?
Costs for services are linked to the individual’s plan and funded package of supports. Residents pay their own day to day living expenses such as rent, power, groceries and transport.
What happens if my family member moves into supported accommodation and then decides it isn’t suitable or appropriate?
There is a three month trial period to allow the new resident to adjust to their home and housemates. The person can choose to withdraw throughout this time. Accommodation can be ended by the individual, their family, or the organisation if it is believed that this placement is not conducive to the needs of the individual or their housemates.
Can I visit my family member in supported accommodation?
It is Possability’s philosophy that this will be your family member’s home and you have the right to visit. We only ask that the visits happen at a time where it has minimal impact on the routines of the house and the person’s housemates.
