The Summer Foundation has worked closely with people with disability and their families to understand the experiences, issues and concerns about housing and support. Throughout this consultation process, the aim was to create a toolkit that is relevant and user-friendly, to help people make their own choices.
Launched on 11 June 2013, the Housing Toolkit is for both people with disability who require a high level of support and their families, to support decision-making regarding housing and support options within the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). The Housing Toolkit is available to purchase in hard copy format and is also available for free download. You can also view the real life examples contained in the toolkit online here. People with disability and their families are eligible to receive a hard copy at no cost; please call Information and Connections Coordinator, Penny Paul, on 1300 626 560 for more information.
