Accommodation and Tenancy
The NDIS can assist participants to live independently. Participants and their families can discuss their home and living goals as part of their planning conversation. A participant’s plan will include the supports the NDIS will fund as well as the supports the participant will need to access through the housing system. Most participants will continue to access housing in the private market by owning or renting, or through social housing. NDIS participants are responsible for day-to-day living costs including rent, groceries, utilities, telephone or internet costs. In some cases, NDIS participants may require support from an occupational therapist to assist with independent living skills such as cooking, personal care or budgeting.
