In September 2015 we sought expressions of interest from support organisations wanting to collaborate in the Hunter housing and support demonstration project by providing core support services to the tenants living in the project for the initial two years of the project. This support will be provided in line with each tenant’s individual support package funding.
We were delighted with the response to the EOI. We received a large number of high quality submissions from a wide range of organisations.
After careful consideration, we are very pleased to announce that Ability Options has been selected as the support provider for the initial two-year establishment and implementation phase of the demonstration project. Ability Options has a strong presence in the Hunter NDIS trial site and supports over 300 NDIS participants. Ability Options will have a key role in the development and implementation of the support model and its refinement through participation in ongoing action research and formal evaluation.
