What is the Housing Seeker profile and how it can help you find a new home
The Housing Hub lists homes that may suit a wide range of people, including Supported Independent Living, Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) at all levels, Medium and Short term accommodation options and mainstream rentals. A great way to join the community and stay informed is to create a housing seeker profile.
This is a simple process which involves you telling the Housing Hub what you are looking for and what is important to you. This allows the Housing Hub to customise its search and alert you to properties that might suit you.
Your profile tells the Housing Hub
When your preferences change, just change your profile to suit – you can adjust your profile at any time.
When you get a notification of a home that is potential match for what you are looking for, it is up to you if you want to find out more.
Your profile is also a way to show housing providers that you exist – it puts you and your housing preferences on the map, even if you are only in the very early stages of your housing journey.
We have also put together a short video guide to show you how quick and easy it is to set up your own Housing Hub profile. You can also download the guide as a PDF here.

Giving us information on this page is up to you. You can still use this website without giving us information. Any information you give will be used to help you find a new property and to get to know the type of housing you need.
If we know what types of housing people with disability want, we can let housing providers know where people with disability want to live, who they want to live with and what they want and need from their housing needs.
This means that people with disability can drive the change!
We may put some of the information you give us together with information that other people give us, to see how it compares. For example, we might create a map or a graph that shows how many people would like to live in a suburb or region. The way we do this would make sure that no-one knows anything private about you, or can tell who the information came from.
