As part of our work to develop a new approach to home and living, we have undertaken three research projects:
- A research study in partnership with Scope Australia to understand what supports participants use when living in their preferred home, or how they work towards this goal.
- A review of research and current practice to identify what interventions or strategies best support people with disability to move out of group homes or congregate care.
- An evidence review to explore what components of Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) might best meet the needs of people with significant and permanent disability.
There are different types of home and living supports that the NDIS can fund.
Our research can help to understand how best to support participants and help inform the decisions we make about home and living supports.
