Supported accommodation options for people with disability: investigating responses to the urban village concept

Disability Urbanisation Australia Australian Capital Territory

ACT Community Living Project Inc (CLP) is a not-for-profit organisation seeking quality life choices for people with disability, including a choice of accommodation that suits their individual needs as well as social inclusion opportunities within the wider community. CLP conducted a survey in 2010-11 in the ACT designed at gathering detailed information on the areas of care and supervision levels for the person with disability, availability of respite and other disability services, future planning and financial support levels for the person with disability once they are no longer able to be supported in the family home. The aim of the survey was to obtain data from impacted families to develop an evidence-based supported accommodation model that meets the needs of care recipients, their families and carers.
