Support Coordinator

Moving into an Edenbridge Living home is a life-changing experience for my brother, who has an intellectual disability. The 1-bedroom villa gives him the independence he craved but still with support available and friends living next door. The Edenbridge team's dedication to their residents' comfort is evident in every detail of their homes.

As a support coordinator, my primary concern is to find accommodation that not only ensures the safety and comfort of my clients but also enriches their lives. Edenbridge Living has been a remarkable partner in this regard. It's a relief to know that such a dedicated provider is just a call away.

What are disability group homes?

How many disabled persons can live in each disability group home?

The number of residents in each disability group home can vary, generally ranging from 3 to 4 individuals in smaller, more intimate settings. Up to 10-12 individuals can live together in larger homes, depending on the facility’s size and the level of care provided.

What is the difference between Disability Group Homes and Disability Rental Housing?

Disability Group Homes:

  • Structured Support: Provide 24/7 care and support by trained staff for residents with significant disability needs.
  • Community Living: Residents share a living space, fostering opportunities for social engagement and building a communal spirit.
  • Personalised Care Plans: Tailored support and care plans to meet the individual needs of each resident.

  • Independent Living: Designed for individuals who require minimal to moderate support, promoting independence.

What are the different SDA housing categories?

Can I choose where I live?

Having checked disability group home enrolments and vacancies and within the availability of suitable digital group home properties, you can choose your accommodation based on location, type, and provider.

Can I move to another disability group home?

Yes, you can move to another disability group home if your needs change or if you find a more suitable option. However, this requires a reassessment of your eligibility and needs.

What kind of support can I expect in disability group homes?

Support varies by accommodation but can include on-site care, access to therapy services, community activities, and assistive technologies.

What is 'Supported Independent Living' (SIL)?

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is a range of services provided to people with disabilities to support them in living as independently as possible. This typically includes assistance with daily tasks, personal care, and developing skills to participate in the community, tailored to the individual’s needs and goals. SIL aims to empower individuals by enhancing their ability to perform everyday activities within their own homes and communities.

How can I apply for SIL?

To apply for Supported Independent Living (SIL) under the NDIS, ensure your NDIS plan includes SIL. Contact your NDIS planner or coordinator to discuss your needs and review your plan. They will guide you through the application process, which involves assessing your support needs and finding a suitable SIL provider.

Who is eligible for disability group homes?

Eligibility for disability group homes typically includes individuals with significant functional impairments due to a wide range of disabilities, such as intellectual, cognitive, or physical disabilities. These homes are designed to support those who require assistance with daily living activities, social inclusion, and community participation. The specific eligibility criteria can vary depending on the organisation and the services they provide, often including assessing the individual’s care needs and compatibility with the group home environment.

How long does the application process take?

The timeline can vary depending on individual circumstances, including the availability of suitable accommodations and the completeness of your application.

What if my application for a disability group home is denied?

You can request a review of the decision through the NDIS. It’s also beneficial to consult with your NDIS planner or a local area coordinator for further guidance and to explore alternative solutions.

What are my rights regarding lease agreements?

In Australia, as a tenant with a disability, you have the same rights as any other tenant under residential tenancy laws, which include fair treatment, privacy, and the right to a safe and habitable living environment. Additionally, you are protected against discrimination based on your disability, as outlined by the Disability Discrimination Act 1992. This means landlords cannot refuse to rent to you, charge higher fees, or provide unequal services due to your disability. If modifications are needed, these can often be negotiated with the landlord.

What should I do if I face discrimination?

If you face discrimination in Australia, it’s important to report the incident to the Australian Human Rights Commission. Additionally, seeking legal advice can help you understand potential discrimination claims and your rights. These steps are crucial in addressing and resolving discrimination issues effectively.

What are the legal rights of disabled individuals concerning disability group homes?

Renters with disabilities are protected under several laws:

  • Disability Discrimination Act 1992: Protects individuals from discrimination in many areas, including housing.
  • National Construction Code: Requires new buildings to meet accessibility standards.
  • Residential Tenancies Act: Varies by state but generally provides rights concerning rental agreements, evictions, and disputes.
  • Australian Human Rights Commission: Offers a complaint resolution service for discrimination cases.

These laws ensure that individuals with disabilities have equal access to rental housing and are protected against discrimination.

What costs are involved with disability group homes?

SDA funding for disability group homes covers the cost of the physical environment for eligible NDIS participants. SDA funding does not cover personal daily living costs like groceries and internet.

What are the different financial assistance programs for persons with disabilities?

In Australia, financial assistance for persons with disabilities includes:

  1. National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS): Provides funding for necessary support, including housing modifications.
  2. Centrelink Payments: Various payments such as Disability Support, Pension, and Rent Assistance for eligible individuals.
  3. State Housing Authorities: Provide social housing for people with a disability under financial hardship.
  4. Non-Profit Organisations: Offer grants and assistance for home modifications and rent support.

These programs aim to support the housing needs of individuals with disabilities, ensuring they have access to suitable and affordable accommodation.

How can Rental Assistance and Bond Loan Assistance help the disabled?

Rental Assistance and Bond Loan Assistance can significantly help disabled individuals in several ways:

  1. Reduced Financial Burden: These programs help lower renting costs, making it more affordable for disabled individuals who might be on a limited income due to their inability to work full-time.
  2. Access to Suitable Accommodation: With financial assistance, disabled individuals can afford to live in accommodations designed or modified for their needs, improving their quality of life.
  3. Security Deposit Support: Bond Loan Assistance provides the upfront costs often required for rental properties, such as security deposits, which can be a significant barrier for many individuals looking to rent.
  4. Stability and Independence: By assisting with the financial aspects of housing, these programs enable disabled individuals to live independently in a stable environment, which is crucial for their overall well-being.
  5. Flexibility in Housing Options: Financial assistance can broaden the range of housing options available to disabled individuals, allowing them to choose homes in suitable locations closer to essential services or support networks.
  6. Encouragement of Social Inclusion: Living in a stable, suitable environment can help disabled individuals participate more fully in community life, enhancing their social inclusion and mental health.

These programs are designed to ensure that disabled individuals can live in safe, comfortable, and affordable housing, addressing one of the most fundamental aspects of their well-being.
