Accommodation

Let us help you find your new home.

Your care your way

We can match you with suitable accommodation that meets your individual needs and goals.

Your place to call home

The NDIS provides NDIS participants with a range of living options that they can choose to suit their needs for living. The accommodation may be temporary in nature or long term. It is important to have this conversation with the planner and your families/supports to ensure that you make the NDIS planner aware of this. Your plan will include supports the NDIS will fund plus the supports to help you get through the housing system.

Help at Hand Support services provides options for accommodation supports. We work with you and your family/support network to find you a suitable home. We support people over 18 years of age.

We focus on tailoring a solution that meets your needs and we work together with you to find a solution that you will be happy with. We also work in conjunction with your support coordinator and yourself to ensure that your supports align with your NDIS plan. To learn more about our vacancies please click here.
