Accommodation Services

With the introduction of NDIS individualised funding it has given participants and their families the opportunity for true "Choice and Control" over their future decisions around how and where they want to live.

If you Currently Have an Accommodation (SIL or SDA) Package

If you are looking to move from your current provider or wish to change your supports to more individualised support or you wish to live with a different group of friends then we are keen to talk to you to discuss options with you.

We are working with a number of families who have current accommodation or who are moving to new packages who wish to specialise their accommodation options and develop more suitable arrangements. Please contact us for more information regarding this, or arrange to come to a meeting with our families if this is something we can support you with. Contact us on  enquiries@nwds.org.au or Gemhill Cottage

Are you interested in investigating accommodation options in the future?

In your NDIS planning meeting there are opportunities to discuss long term goals which may include accommodation supports. If you suggest a long term goal to move into another form of accommodation, your NDIS planner may allocate you Support Coordination funding to assist you to navigate the transition process.  

If you are looking forward to a time when you will have an individualised accommodation package and are ready to plan for a future with a group of people who you know and wish to live with then we are keen to talk to you. We are working with a number of  people who are developing their own future life goals of accommodation that suits them and their lifestyle. These people are excited about the opportunity to live where they want and with the people they want to live with. They will also employ the staff they know and connect with, so they can plan their future aspirations and goals to work toward. NWDS will support you and your families to achieve your future accommodation and if requested, provide the management of the accommodation into the future.

Families are also requesting  opportunities where participants are trialling staying together overnight and attending functions and activities together to explore the possibilities that they may build a relationship that may suit a longer term living arrangement.  This could include overnight sleepovers, short breaks and camps, short term accommodation or other opportunities upon request. Our overnight stays have been and are great fun and participants have enjoyed the opportunity to cook a meal and plan activities that they enjoy doing together.

The development of  Micro Boards and Lifestyle Plans is a key component for the future when family members may then take time to look at other life goals and the participants move forward into their accommodation with joy and a sense of adventure. Talk to us if you would like to understand more about any of these aspects.
