Open your housing seeker profile

Go to your housing seeker profile. You opened this in a separate window at the start of the workshop. Now fill in

  • NDIS plans and supports – If you don’t have SDA funding in your NDIS plan, you can leave most of this section empty. 
  • Support coordinator or planner name and email – If you want to invite your support coordinator, planner or someone else to help you search for a new home, put their name in here 

To see how to complete these parts of your housing seeker profile, watch this video.
