Housing Options Online Learning Package – Introduction

HomeHelp & ResourcesHousing Options Workshop

Housing options for people with disability 

In this free, self-paced online learning package you can learn about housing for people with disability. We want you to find the right home for you.  

With the NDIS, you have more choices about where you live and who you live with. The 12 short video chapters talk about your housing choices, including specialist disability accommodation (SDA). 

This workshop has been made for people with disability who are looking for accessible accommodation. Family and supporters can use it too. 


How to use this resource

Each video chapter describes one thing about housing for people with disability. 

Each page starts with a short summary. Watch this if you don’t have much time or aren’t sure if the information is what you need. 

Or you can watch the full video that is underneath it.  

You can watch the videos in any order or just watch the ones that interest you. 

We think it is best to watch them all in order.

Start your housing seeker profile

During the workshop, we will support you to set up a Housing Seeker profile on the Housing Hub website. Your profile will say

  • Where you want to live
  • Who you want to live with 
  • What things you need in a home to make it accessible to you

The Housing Hub website uses this information to show you homes that match what you are looking for. 

You can change your profile whenever you want to.

Click the button below to start making your housing seeker profile in a separate window. Write in your email address and make a password.
