Independent living

Find your ideal home, housemates and supports to live your best life with our independent living options.

Tell us what your best life looks like and we’ll help make it happen.

We offer a personal touch – we want to understand where you are now and where you want to be. Then we can support your journey to get there.

A place to call home

Explore

Together we explore what is important to you and what type of lifestyle you want.

Finding a home

Choosing the house you want to make your home is a big decision, and there are lots of possibilities. You might look at renting, sharing, buying or Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) options.

Finding a housemate or living alone

Living Together – If you prefer the company of others, you can look at sharing your home. There are lots of ways you can find someone to share with – you can move into an already established home or you can find like-minded people to set up a new house or unit. We can help make introductions and break the ice.

If you’re interested in moving into an already establish home, you can find our vacancies below.

Single Living – Some prefer their own company. Single Living is just that; living in your own home by yourself.

Neighbourhood Living – Everybody needs good neighbours. Living in a complex of units and becoming part of a close-knit community, you can choose to live in a unit by yourself or share with others.

Design your supports

Your support team will always be built around you.

It’s personal – Your key worker will be there for the long term, to get to know you and what makes you ‘tick.’ You will also have a small support team, so there is someone you know to support you when needed.

Flexibility – We listen and work with you to set up your support how and when you need it. We love getting to know your family and friends, and learning how we can bring the most value to you all.

Community connections – Your support team is set up from around your local community, so they can bring their neighbourhood knowledge to you.

Skilled staff – Our staff are trained in Positive Behaviour Support, inclusive practices and safeguarding.

Values – We are a values-driven organisation. We recruit employees that share and uphold our beliefs in human rights and dignity.

Setting up for success

Everyone works at their own pace and you may want to build on some skills before you’re ready to try independent living.

Your Support Plan might have goals to help you build confidence in everyday tasks like:

  • Cleaning and making a bed
  • Cooking and a healthy diet
  • Taking public transport
  • Going out into the community for appointments, to meet friends or for hobbies.

Transition accommodation

Sometimes it takes time – we offer support options to tide you over while you wait for your perfect fit.

Short Stays (also known as respite) – See what it’s like living in a shared space with a change of scenery. Short Stays give you the opportunity to develop friendships with potential housemates and really focus on your skill development. Short Stays also cover emergency housing situations, when your perfect fit isn’t yet available.

Medium Stays (also known as Medium Term Accommodation) – For a longer stay, Medium Stays is offered for periods of up to three months. This might suit people who are waiting for their homes to be found, built or modified. Often people waiting for Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) need Medium Stays.
