This Final Report presents the findings of a research project commissioned by the Disability Policy and Research Working Group (DPRWG) to explore the barriers and obstacles impeding a person-centred approach to planning and private housing for people with disability.
More specifically, the research aimed to:
- review selected person-centred approaches to private housing securement for people with disability;
- map the context and identify the structural elements impeding attempts to implement person-centred approaches and access to housing in the private market for people with disability;
- provide recommendations on how the person-centred models studied can be refined to inform person-centred planning , individualised support and self-directed funding;
- explore the implications for access to and the design and provision of private housing for people with disability; and
- establish the basis for ongoing housing and disability research.
This report is funded with assistance from a funding grant offered under the National Disability Research and Development Agenda, jointly implemented by disability representatives from Commonwealth, State and Territory governments.
