The Hunter Housing Demonstration Project was officially launched on 28 July. The demonstration project consists of ten apartments for people with disability peppered throughout a 110-unit private development. The apartments incorporate clever design features and smart-home technology to allow tenants to enjoy their independence while still having access to 24-hour on call support.
Our goal is to see this model of housing replicated in all medium and high density housing developments in Australia to create the range and scale of housing needed for people with disability who wish to live more independently. To find out more, read Simon Plint’s story here.
Some people may be eligible to receive funding for specialist disability accommodation. Find out more with the specialist disability accommodation fact sheet.
