Allied Health Housing Assessments

HomeHelp & Resources


The aim of this guide is to assist support coordinators and allied health professionals to collaborate on Housing Plans for National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participants. Housing Plans rely on appropriately framed allied health assessments and reports to support the participant pursue their goals and aspirations.

This tool has been developed to help make your job easier, by providing a structure and some suggestions for how to help participants to explain their housing journey, their needs and their preferences to the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).

When developing this too over 30 allied health professionals, family members and supports and Support coordinators were consulted as well as our own learnings from assisting participants find housing.
