SEPARATING HOUSING AND SUPPORT SERVICES toolkit

The NDIS’s approach to housing has radically changed the way participants find housing and the way that providers create and manage housing for people with disability.

Separating tenancy and support is critical to enabling choice and control for people with disability, but some housing and support providers are uncertain about how it will work in practice.

We’ve created a toolkit to help providers understand why separation is beneficial and how it can work in practice. The toolkit also details the challenges involved in separating housing and support services and explains how to work through the process. The toolkit includes real-life examples from around Australia of existing models of housing and support, analyses of these models, sample agreements and other relevant documents that can be easily adapted.

Download the toolkit here or click the ‘download now’ button opposite.


The Summer Foundation also has sourced some sample documents for different types of agreements:

Service delivery agreement: between housing management and support service providers (additional example here)

Property management agreement: agreement between housing owner and housing manager

Lease agreement: between tenant and housing management service provider

Support contract agreement: between tenant and support service provider

Please note, these documents are examples only. Organisations should engage financial and legal advice to prepare agreements that are suitable for their own context.
