Housing & Accommodation

The right housing and accommodation can be hard to find for people with disability.

You may need access ramps or other adaptations for which the general housing market would not normally cater. It can be hard to find out information as adaptations may not be shown on real estate websites.

These limitations may result in barriers to independent living and you may feel there are limited options or spaces available to fit your specific needs and budget.

The following specialist organisations may be able to assist you.

New Horizons

A joint initiative between NSW Health, Housing NSW and New Horizons, the Housing & Accommodation Support Initiative (HASI) provides practical, individualised accommodation support.
