Our Support Coordination service is focused on quality housing outcomes. If you are at the beginning of your housing journey and want to explore what might suit you, we can support you through this process. We can support you to explore housing options, gather and develop SDA or ILO evidence and submit to the NDIA. Please note that we do not offer long-term or ongoing support coordination.
We can guide and connect you through the appeal process if your SDA outcome doesn't meet your housing needs and preferences. This can include reviewing your evidence and connecting you to legal and advocacy support.
We provide secondary consultation to support your team in preparing and reviewing evidence to support your housing application.
The Housing Hub team have extensive experience in understanding housing options under the NDIS and supporting people to explore housing options, obtain funding (including SDA and ILO) and identify housing solutions.
We are housing experts and we are now offering that expertise to people with disability through the provision of support coordination.
Our team has partnered with OnSide to deliver you a support coordination service that focuses on your housing journey. The collaboration is delivered under OnSide’s registration with the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission.
We put you first. We know that quality housing outcomes are achieved when your needs and preferences are front and centre.
We are experts. The Housing Hub is invested in quality housing for people with disability. Our team has worked to become subject matter experts and we have led many initiatives to educate the disability community and housing providers about quality housing for people with disability.
We deliver quality. Our experience means we understand what quality reports look like and include. We understand SDA eligibility and applicable legislation. We can assist you to quickly work out whether to apply for SDA funding and/or look at other housing options.
