The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) acknowledges a good proportion of homes aren’t suited to people with disabilities. If you are funded under the NDIS you can access funding to have your home modified or even get funding to look for somewhere new.
If you want to have your home modified you can have this put in your NDIS plan.
Alternatively you can request modifications from the owner of your home or manager of your housing. Or if your disability modifications are broken, you can request they are fixed from your owner or agent.
If you have high needs, the NDIS could help you with housing under the Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) funding program.
If you’re designing an NDIS plan or updating the one you have, make sure you think about what modifications might make your home better suited to you.
If you or your supporters have any queries about the NDIS, you can call People with Disability Australia's (PWDA's) Information, Intake and Referral Service on 1800 843 929.
