This report is intended for those developing policy and practices to create tailored housing and support living arrangements for people with disabilities, particularly those with more complex support needs. The essential elements which were judged to have contributed to the success of the project are described. Reflections and learnings are available to assist future housing projects. Opportunities for systemic reform are noted.

This report offers reflections and learnings about the origins and set up phase of the Abbotsford Housing Demonstration Project. The report is not a ‘how to’ for every situation – because for each situation there will be different collaborators and potential tenants, and a diverse range of background and context factors. Neither is this report an evaluation of the project.

The Transport Accident Commission (TAC) has commissioned the Institute of Safety, Compensation and Recovery Research (ISCRR) to conduct an evaluation based on: Post-occupancy built and technology design evaluation; Evaluation of transition to RIPL developments; and longitudinal quality of life evaluation of RIPL tenants.
