Houses for people with disability in NSW

 

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) supports people with a permanent and significant disability, which affects their ability to take part in everyday activities. Impact draws on its 15 years’ experience in OoHC to provide Supported Independent Living and other services to young adults in the Hunter and Western Sydney areas. Further expansion is planned for 2018.

 

We offer a range of service models, ranging from units to purpose modified houses and group homes with 24-hour support.

 

Services are provided to people living in specialised support models who require 24-hour assistance. More specifically, Impact runs specialised support models for people on the autism spectrum and people living with ongoing mental health issues.

 

Service Objectives:

 

  • Provision of a service focused on individual need

  • Provision of a service focused on education, community support and expanding social networks

  • Ongoing development of a quality service through training

  • Promotion of the full participation of people we support in all aspects of service delivery and management

  • To maintain all accommodation in line with community standards

  • To maintain a system of quality assurance

  • To operate within the allocated resources

  • An educational and training approach tailored to each individual enabling them to reach their own level of independence.

 

Discover the freedom of living life your way, close to local amenities and transport, with your friends and family around you. 

 

I want a home of my own

 

Do you want to leave home but need to build the confidence to do so? 

Do you require a level of ongoing support in your own home?

The NDIS will use the following terms to describe the funding you can purchase for these services:

In some situations, applicants may be required to be eligible to receive funding for specialist disability accommodation in their NDIS or Continuity of Support plan.
