Learn about mainstream and non-SDA housing, home modifications, assistive technology and capacity building supports to help a person with disability explore suitable mainstream housing.

This UpSkill workshop, brought to you by the Summer Foundation, focuses on the ‘bricks and mortar’.  It is designed to build the capacity of support coordinators and allied health professionals to assist  people with disability to explore suitable mainstream housing that reflects their goals, preferred living arrangements and support needs.

This workshop via Zoom, is facilitated by UpSkill Lead Linda Hughes.
There will be practical exercises, opportunity for group discussion and questions and answers.

Finding accessible and affordable housing is a challenge and we cannot promise a silver bullet. But we will provide innovative ideas and useful tips to help make a person’s housing goals a reality. We will share successful stories where ‘out of the box’ thinking has made housing dreams come true.

Important note: This workshop does not include information about SDA. If you need introductory information about SDA, you can access free video resources on the Housing Hub here and here.
